Masterpieces of Russian Literature 9 Volume Starter Collection
The works of Russia’s golden age of prose literature were written against a background of czarist autocracy. Falling generally within the realist framework, the masterworks of this era exhibit a strong bent toward mysticism, brooding introspection, and melodrama. Nineteenth century Czarist Russia—with its immense economic, ethnic, and religious disparities—produced some of the finest novels ever created by the human imagination. Authors such as Leo Tolstoy, Fyodor Dostoevsky and Ivan Turgenev, writing during a period of incredible political repression and artistic censorship, left the world a cast of indelible characters and a wealth of powerful themes and revolutionary ideas that continue to intrigue, perplex, entertain and inspire us today.
