Readings in Russian Poetics: Formalist and Structuralist Views

Scholarly Series
Ladislav Matejka
Preface by Gerald L. Bruns

This collection of the definitive essays by and about the Russian Formalists is crucial to understanding the major theoretical movement of the 1920s and 1930s. Investigating the conceptualization of structure and form within literature, the Formalists affected both the creation of art during this period and the development of literary theory as a scientific discipline.

Included in this volume are essays by Boris M. Eichenbaum (“The Theory of the Formal Method”), Viktor Shklvosky (“The Mystery Novel: Dickens’s Little Dorrit“), Roman Jakobson (“On Realism in Art”), Mikhail Bakhtin (“Discourse Typology in Prose”), and Osip M. Brik (“Contributions to the Study of Verse Language”).
