A Critical Companion
Gayla Diment

No other novel has been used to describe the "Russian mentality" or "Russian soul" as frequently as Ivan Goncharov's Oblomov, first published in 1859. This guide will enable readers to appreciate fully the remarkable talent of the writer and his masterpiece.

All the essays were written specifically for this volume and are published here for the first time. The book also includes an introduction, autobiographical materials, an annotated bibliography, and letters never before translated into English.

Contributors: Galya Diment, John Givens, Beth Holmgren, Karl D. Kramer, Ronald D. LeBlanc, Alexandar Mihailovic, and Brian Thomas Oles.
