The best account in any language of the complex development of Soviet literature. A penetrating and subtle, yet consistently lucid study of all the important writers, works, movements, and periods, informed with a constant awareness of the interactions of literature, society, and politics.—Robert A. Maguire

Brown’s interpretation is profound, erudite, spirited. The 1982 edition includes five new and brilliant chapters which tell the last decade’s rich, wondersome, bitter story of a great literature torn by censorship and exile.—Vera S. Dunham

Brown strikes a perfect balance in presenting Soviet Russian literature, official and dissident alike, both as a body of imaginative writing and as an invaluable document of Soviet life, of its pretensions and its realities.—Maurice Friedberg

An indispensable book, by a superb scholar and writer. It tells one of the great stories of our century—and with unrivaled authority and eloquence.—Donald Fanger
