Publication details for Prof Mikhail Epstein

Epstein, Mikhail, Genis, Alexander & Vladiv-Glover, Slobodanka (1999). Russian Postmodernism: New Perspectives on Post-Soviet Culture. New York, Oxford: Berghahn Books.

Author(s) from Durham


The last couple of decades have been decisive for Russia not only in the political sphere; the period has also seen the rise and crystallization of Russian postmodernism. The essays, manifestos, and articles gathered here investigate various manifestations of this crucial cultural trend in: Russian fiction, poetry, art, and spirituality, offering both a point of departure and valuable guide to an area of contemporary literary-cultural studies insufficiently represented in English-language scholarship. A brief but useful "Who's Who in Russian Postmodernism" serves as an appendix.
