Book excerpt: Panoramic, sweeping, monumental, haunting: a story of four families which spans the centuries of Russia from Edward Rutherford, the author of Paris, London and New York. In this vast and gorgeous tapestry of a novel, serf and master, Cossack and tsar, priest and Jew are brought together in a family saga which unrolls through centuries of history to reveal that most impenetrable and mysterious of lands - Russia. Through the life of a little town east of Moscow in the Russian heartland, Edward Rutherfurd creates a sweeping family saga from the baffling contradictions of Russia's culture and her peoples - bleak yet exotic, brutal but romantic, land of ritual yet riddled with superstitious fears. From Russia's dawn and the cruel Tatar invasions to Ivan the Terrible and the wild Cossacks, from Peter, Catherine and the days of War and Peace to the drama of the Revolution and the extraordinary events of today - here is Russia's story in a spellbinding novel - history recreated with breathtaking detail and passion.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Ever since its first appearance in Russian literature in the 11th century, Nusantara, then a legendary country somewhere in the isles 'beyond India', next to Paradise, has continually stirred the imagination of Russian men of letters. Early Russian writers saw it as a fabulous land allegedly visited by Alexander the Great and saintly pilgrims, and the home of pious Rahmans, monsters and allegorical animals—a land that knew no injustice and which thus provided an ideal setting for social utopias. Russian classics like Pushkin, Goncharov, and Turgenev, and especially the writers of the Silver Age (Bryusov, Balmont, and Bunin), created a different image of Nusantara: Nusantara the exotic, a land of refined aromas and deadly poisons, of tropical flowers and ancient temples, which comprised a constellation of irresistibly attractive far-off islands offering an imaginary refuge from the humdrum of the real world. In the works of the Soviet poets (Gorodetsky, Tikhonov, and Simonov), finally, Nusantara the exotic was supplanted by Nusantara the ideological arena—the region of working masses suffering under the yoke of colonialism and of communists fighting for a brighter future. The first section of this book—intended for both Southeast Asianists and Slavic scholars—offers a survey of Russian images of Nusantara from their genesis and sources (old Byzantine and modern Western) through their nine-century evolution. The second section contains a comprehensive selection of excerpts from literary works (in both English translation and the Russian original) in which these images are elaborated. The third section supplements the other two with a variety of rare materials relating to the topic of the book as well as with traditional Malay writings about Russia.

Download or read book Esthetics of Literary Subjects written by Dushan Bresky and published by Peter Lang Incorporated, International Academic Publishers. This book was released on 2002 with total page 341 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Literary Practice III concludes Dushan Bresky's major critical trilogy. Following Volume I, outlining a comprehensive method for evaluating literary art, and Volume II, analyzing the elusive stimulative qualities of style, Volume III focuses on the esthetics of literary content. Its time-tested subjects include violent and psychological conflicts, erotic bonds, as well as humorous, supernatural, fantastic, utopian, and bizarre topics. In estimating their potential impact, Bresky draws not only on the French heritage (his academic specialty) but branches into all Western literatures, ranging from the Illiad and the medieval Legenda Aurea to the novels of Samuel Beckett and John Updike. In the «Biocybernetic Epilog» written just before his death in 1998, collaborator Miroslav Malik discusses the evolution of biometric techniques designed to monitor our responses to perception and their auxiliary role in esthetic literary criticism.
