Alexander Lavrov, Andrey Bely between Conrad and Chesterton. Magnus Ljunggren, The bomb, the baby, the : Magnus Ljunggren, Hans Åkerström. Andrey Bely, pseudonym of Boris Nikolayevich Bugaev, was a Russian poet, novelist, theorist and literary critic. He was a leading member of Russian Symbolist movement, a literary school deriving from the Modernist movement in western European art and literature and an indigenous Eastern Orthodox spirituality, expressing mystical and abstract ideas through allegories from life and nature.

    The Silver Dove, published four years before Bely's masterpiece Petersburg, is considered the first modern Russian novel. Breaking with Russian realism, and a pioneering Symbolist work, its vividly drawn characters, elemental landscapes, and rich style make it accessible to the Western reader, and this new translation makes the complete work available in English for the first : $ 11 Richard Wagner's opera is treated as a subtext of Petersburg in Vladimir Alexandrov's Andrei Bely: The Major Symbolist Fiction (Cambridge, MA, ), 12 On the Poltava jubilee celebrations see Richard Wortman's Scenarios of Power (Princeton, ), –

    The Reluctant Modernist: Andrei Belyi and the Development of Russian Fiction, New York: Clarendon Press, New York: Clarendon Press, Places Bely’s career in context.   This could be translation, but, given the experimental style of the novel, it could just as easily be Bely himself. One of Bely’s ‘meditative drawings’ from , when he was writing the novel. Overall, I think that Petersburg is a book to be discussed, rather than a book to read on your own.
