Abstract

Vladimir Nabokov described the literature course he taught at Cornell as ""a kind of detective investigation of the mystery of literary structures."" Leona Toker here pursues a similar investigation of the enigmatic structures of Nabokov's own fiction. According to Toker, most previous critics stressed either Nabokov’s concern with form or the humanistic side of his works, but rarely if ever the two together. In sensitive and revealing readings of ten novels, Toker demonstrates that the need to reconcile the human element with aesthetic or metaphysical pursuits is a constant theme of Nabokov’s and that the tension between technique and content is itself a key to his fiction. Written with verve and precision, Toker’s book begins with Pnin and follows the circular pattern that is one of her subject’s own favored devices.

Abstract

Studies in Syntactics. The purpose of this book is to explore the structure of the text as such using a metalanguage derived from quantitative poetics. Grigori Utgof’s thesis is that texts should be studied statistically. The main problems addressed in his research are the problem of successivity on the formal (syntactic) plane of artistic texts, and the problem of syntactic dissimilarity. Largely prompted by Yuri Tynianov’s famous statement – „The unity of the work is not a closed, symmetrical intactness, but an unfolding, dynamic integrity. Between its elements is not the static sign of equality and addition, but the dynamic sign of correlation and integration. The form of the literary work must be recognized as a dynamic phenomenon“ (The Problem of Verse Language; translated by Michael Sosa and Brent Harvey) – Grigori Utgof demonstrates the inherent nonidentity of the intratextual order, and proceeds to the problem of measuring some translated texts’ dissimilarities. In particular, his book is an inquiry into the structure of the following eight texts: Приглашение на казнь / Invitation to a Beheading by Vladimir Nabokov, and the novel’s Estonian translation Kutse tapalavale [Invitation to the Block] by Rein Saluri; “За гремучую доблесть грядущих веков...” by Osip Mandel’shtam, and two translations of this poem into English: “In the Name of the Higher Tribes of the Future” by Robert Lowell and “For the Sake of the Resonant Valor of Ages to Come…” by Vladimir Nabokov; “Облако в штанах” (“Cloud in Trousers”) by Vladimir Mayakovsky; “Ballada [Ballade]” by Czesław Miłosz in Natalya Gorbanevskaya’s translation (“Баллада”).

Abstract

Diese Arbeit beschäftigt sich in ihrem Hauptteil mit den Beziehungen, welche das dichterische Werk des russischen Chansonsängers Vladimir Vysockij (1938-1980) mit anderen Texten in vielfältiger Weise eingeht. Nach einem Einleitungskapitel, in dem Leben, Werk und Reaktionen auf V.s Schaffen zu dessen Lebzeiten vorgestellt, sowie Fragen zum Genre des literarischen Chansons und zur Textedition behandelt werden, ist das zweite Kapitel (2.0.-2.5.) dem eigentlichen Thema der Arbeit, den transtextuellen Beziehungen (im Sinne von G. Genette) gewidmet. Im Schlußkapitel werden die Ergebnisse im Hinblick auf deren Relevanz für das Textverstehen untersucht. Ein weiterer, nur für Vysockij-Spezialisten relevanter Band umfaßt ein Register der Texte V.s, geordnet nach dem ersten Vers (sog. "Zentralkartei"), mit den wesentlichen biblio- und phonographischen Angaben, sowie ein Verzeichnis nach Texttiteln mit Verweisen auf die Textanfänge (sog. "Titelkartei").

Abstract

Marina Grishakova belongs to the younger generation scholars of the Tartu-Moscow school of semiotics. Her book is part of a semio-narratological tradition of a single author or a single work research that tackles issues of wider theoretical import: applicability of the concept of “modeling” in the humanities, theory of mimesis and the function of experimental literature in (post)modernist culture. By drawing on Y. Lotman’s conception of artistic models, the book adopts the semiotic perspective on modeling as an open-ended heuristic process underlying the logic of discovery and creative thinking. The book discusses the models of time and memory in modernist culture (Nietzsche’s and Bergson’s philosophy of time, Minkowski’s research on the psychopathological types of temporality) and their relevance to Nabokov’s fiction; popular-scientific notions of serialism and the fourth dimension; thematizations of the observer in modernist philosophy and arts; visual “prostheses” and “machines” (Eco), particularly the “camera vision” metaphor, its relation to Bergson’s notion of automatism and the popular idea of the criminal use of hypnosis. Vision is thematized also as a means of seduction and noncoercive control. Even before Foucault, Baudrillard and other critics of modernity, Nabokov noticed that advertising, political propaganda and erotic seduction alike employ implicit forms of suggestion. The book revises Rorty’s dilemma of “autonomy” and “solidarity” as applied to Nabokov’s work and offers new readings. It considers categories of narrative poetics as forms of cultural encoding that broaden and transform reader’s modes of perception and sense-making. Micro-models active in certain contexts or in the works of certain authors function as mobile interfaces between individual sensibilities and complex cultural chrono- and spatio-types where time and space take on conceptual meaning. (This title is the second revised edition, available online only. The web shop refers to the first edition, which is available as a paper monograph.)

Abstract

Gegenstand der vorliegenden Arbeit ist das sowjetrussische Autorenlied, eine Gattung, die trotz der Tatsache, daß die ihr zuzurechnenden Werke gesanglich vorgetragen werden, eindeutig der Dichtung angehört. Der erste Teil (A) stellt einführend die notwendigen biographischen Daten zu den hier im Mittelpunkt stehenden Gedichtsängern und das Textmaterial im Hinblick auf seine Gattungsspezifik in aller Kürze vor. Im Rahmen des eher literatursoziologisch orientierten zweiten Teils (B) wird die Stellung des Autorenlieds innerhalb der sowjetischen Kultur beschrieben, unter Akzentuierung der Zusammenhänge zwischen der Entstehung dieser Gattung und den sehr speziellen kulturellen Bedingungen in der Sowjetunion der späten 50er Jahre.

Abstract

Vladimir Solov'ev gehört zu den bedeutendsten Erscheinungen des geistigen Rußlands. Sein Werk fällt in die letzten Jahrzehnte des neunzehnten Jahrhunderts, die Auswirkung dieses Werkes in das zwanzigste . . . Alle geistesgeschichtlichen Arbeiten Vladimir Solov'evs kämpfen mit Leidenschaft gegen den Rationalismus in der Philosophie und für die Rückführung der in sich geeinten und befriedeten Welt in den Schoß Gottes. So ist vor allen Dingen seine Kritik an dem westeuropäischen Denken zu verstehen, die so manches Gemeinsame mit der Gedankenwelt der Slavophilen hat.

Abstract

A culture shaped by Christianity is about deciphering its underlying religious figures. The present work aims to contribute to this. The point is to examine a figure that established the "functioning" of Old Russian culture, commonly referred to as "the neo-Platonic archetype-image-thinking". Implicitly it is assumed here that in the 10th and 11th an influence of the Slavic culture by the Byzantine Christianity of orthodox imprint took place, the exact way of which is not to be determined. The study of the image-of-the-image thinking in the Byzantine culture and its attachment to the icon worship is therefore dedicated to a first part of this work, the study of the ancient Russian archetype image thinking of the next and largest part.

Abstract

The present work represents the attempt of a scientific-critical study of the life and work of Lev L'vovič Kobylinskij-Éllis (1879-1947) in order to fill a gap in the study of Russian symbolism. The present study should answer the following questions: Is Éllis rightly forgotten? Has he made a contribution to Russian symbolism through his work? Was his work important at the time? Is it of interest today only as a witness of the past or as a personal testimony? Do the works of his second creative period contain important innovations worth examining?
