Detailed Description

Vissarion Belinskii (1811-48) is Russia's greatest literary critic, the 'discoverer' of Dostoevsky, author of the famous Letter to Gogol, friend of Herzen and Turgenev and a founding member of the Russian intelligensia. By concentrating on his struggle as a critic to nurture a Russian literature that could match its European counterparts, Furious Vissarion emphasises both the role of ideas in this process and Belinskiis lifelong passion for literary values. It is the first study in English to reveal the intellectual and emotional range of his correspondence and to illustrate the close relationship between his literary criticism and his personal life.
