Publications of the Wisconsin Center for Pushkin Studies
Alexander Pushkin was Russia’s national poet, the founder of its modern literary language, an innovator across a broad range of genres, and a figure whose biography has generated intense interest and controversy in fields and forms as different as literature, visual art, theater, film, and music. This series publishes works of individual and joint scholarship that feature aspects of Pushkin’s creative world and times. Various critical methodologies and approaches are encouraged, the primary criterion for acceptance and publication being the quality of the research, including its importance for the field of Pushkin studies, and the compelling nature of the guiding idea or argument.

The Unlikely Futurist
Pushkin and the Invention of Originality in Russian Modernism
“We need this book. It addresses a number of important issues that most literary critics and scholars have been aware of, but that no one has attempted to bring together. Moreover, it offers a bold cumulative interpretation of Russian poetic culture of the so-called Golden Age.”
How Russia Learned to Write
Literature and the Imperial Table of Ranks
“Compelling, clever, and persuasive. Examining many Russian writers’ self-fashioning as members of the nobility and their careers in public service, Reyfman admirably shows that the understanding of rank should inflect
all our arguments and histories of the writing profession in Russia.”
