About the Author

Andrei Bely (whose real name was Boris Nikolaevich Bugaev), was born in 1880 into a family of illustrious intellectuals. Bely's writing heavily influenced the Russian Symbolist movement and the subsequent Modernist school - his significance in world literature is often compared to that of James Joyce. He died in Moscow in January 1934. John Elsworth, the translator of this edition, is Professor Emeritus of the University of Manchester. Before moving to Manchester in 1987 he taught at the University of East Anglia and held visiting posts in Virginia and California. His work includes books and articles about Andrei Bely, as well as a translation of Bely's first novel The Silver Dove (Angel Books, 2000). He won the Rossica Translation Prize 2012 for his translation of Petersburg by Andrei Bely.

Reviews

One of the four most important works of twentieth century literature" VLADIMIR NABOKOV "The one novel that sums up the whole of Russia" Anthony BURGESS "The most important, most influential, and most perfectly realized Russian novel written in the 20th century" New York Times Book Review "A man of strange unheard-of insights- magical and a holy fool in the tradition of Russian Orthodoxy" ISAIAH BERLIN "With unswerving loyalty to the original, Elsworth has suceeded in capturing its idiosyncratic rhythms and elusive layers of meaning, producing a masterful translation that reads like a work of art in its own right" ACADEMIA ROSSICA JUDGES PANEL FOR THE 2012 TRANSLATION PRIZE
