Fugitive Worlds and Moving Authors

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review


The author opines on articles in the current issue that address, in one fashion or another, the role played by the concept of movement in nineteenth-century literature. In the author's view contributions by Ingrid Kleespies and Anne Lounsbery use the fixity of the main character in the novel "Oblomov" to convey an alternative presentation of motion. He observes that a paper submitted by Katya Hokanson illustrates that one approach to identifying where Russian literature intersects with the mundane involved trying to expand, in literary fashion, the nineteenth-century Russian empire.
