Zakhar Prilepin's novel-in-stories, Sin, has become a literary phenomenon in Russia, where it was published in 2007. It has been hailed as the epitome of the spirit of the opening decade of the 21st century, and was called "the book of the decade" by the prestigious Super Natsbest Award jury. In the episodes of Zakharka's life, presented here in non-chronological order, we see him as a little boy, a lovelorn teenager, a hard-drinking grave-digger, a nightclub bouncer, a father, and a soldier in Chechnya. Sin offers a fascinating glimpse into the recent Russian past, as well as its present, with its unemployment, poverty, violence, and local wars - social problems that may be found in many corners of the world. Zakhar Prilepin presents these realities through the eyes of Zakharka, taking us along on the life-affirming journey of his unforgettable protagonist. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jack de Golia.

Professor Paducheva's book "The Linguistics of Narrative" is a valuable contribution to the interface between linguistics and literature and to the building of bridges between English-based and Russian-based studies of the linguistic analysis of literary texts. Professor Paducheva is a world-class linguist who has a wide familiarity with literature and with works about literature written from many different perspectives. The importance of this book for linguistic theory comes from its systematic analysis of the semantic and pragmatic consequences of some essential properties of the "non-standard speech-act contexts" in which narrative texts are written and interpreted. The vast majority of research in semantics rests on data concerning language as it occurs in normal conversational situations, where "I", "here", and "now" are the speaker, the place, and the time of the utterance, and speaker and addressee are presupposed to be participating in a common speech-act situation. But there has been little systematic study of the differences in semantic and pragmatic interpretation between ordinary conversational language and narrative texts, and the book fills the gap.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A Journey Beyond the Three Seas (Russian: , Khozheniye za tri morya) is a Russian literary monument in the form of travel notes, made by a merchant from Tver Afanasiy Nikitin during his journey to India in 1466-1472. A Journey Beyond the Three Seas was the first Russian literary work to depict a strictly commercial, non-religious trip. The author visited the Caucasus, Persia, India and the Crimea. However, most of the notes are dedicated to India, its political structure, trade, agriculture, customs and ceremonies. The work is full of lyrical digressions and autobiographic passages. Its last page is in Turkic and the broken Arabic language, these are, in fact, typical Muslim prayers, indicating that Nikitin probably converted to Islam while he was in India, although his lapse from Christianity bothered him as he mentions several times in the text.
"This is an interesting and important book, the first attempt to encapsulate the highly idiosyncratic oeuvre and career of Evgeny Popov, a major and controversial figure in the late Soviet and post-Soviet literary landscape." (Michael Pushkin, University of Birmingham)"Morris is excellent in his treatment of the writer's attitude towards the past and history, and he differentiates between Popov's more nuanced and ambiguous view of the Soviet experiment and those writers, likewise liberals, who have adopted a 'confessional' stance." (Robert Porter, University of Bristol)"A broad contextualization of the works of this important Russian author." (Christine Engel, University of Innsbruck)This is the first book devoted to the writings of Evgeny Popov (born 1946), a major and controversial figure in the late Soviet and post-Soviet literary landscape. The author uses a wide range of primary and secondary sources, many of them in Russian, alongside detailed analysis of the novels and stories themselves. The introduction charts the course of Popov's personal and professional biography, including major turning points such as the Metropole affair of 1979. A chapter on critical contexts provides a clear account of the history of Popov's reception. Other chapters focus on the first collection of short stories and the complexities of narrative voice, the concept of the 'non-elucidatory principle' at the heart of Popov's poetics, and the short story cycles in Metropole and Catalogue , from the late 1970s and early 1980s. Finally the author addresses the key phenomenon of Popov's self-fictionalization in both his shorter and longer works up to the present day.
After a long period of neglect, emotions have become an important topic within literary studies. This collection of essays stresses the complex link between aesthetic and non-aesthetic emotional components and discusses emotional patterns by focusing on the practice of writing as well as on the impact of such patterns on receptive processes. Readers interested in the topic will be presented with a concept of aesthetic emotions as formative both within the writing and the reading process. Essays, ranging in focus from the beginning of modern drama to digital formats and theoretical questions, examine examples from English, German, French, Russian and American literature. Contributors include Angela Locatelli, Vera Nünning, and Gesine Lenore Schiewer.
