Russian Literature by Peter Kropotkin

Introduction by George Woodcock

Believing that the best minds of Russia chose literature to express their conceptions of national life, Kropotkin wrote this literary history as a celebration. Almost every poet and prose-writer of any significance is discussed - Pushkin, Lermontoff, Gogol, Turguenev, Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky.
