Excerpt from Five Russian Plays: With One From the Ukrainian Translated From the Originals, With an Introduction

HE plays selected for translation in this volume are, for the most part, modern. Von sin alone belongs to an earlier date, that of the late eighteenth centuryqcnevertheless it will be found that they have this in common they are, while still Russian, at the same time European, T) This separation of artists into two categories, the national and the European, is quite simple of com prehension. The national author, often the favourite in his own country and one who has strengthened and enriched its language to a great degree, is nevertheless hardly to be appreciated in translation by readers of other European countries Lomonosov, the father of the Russian language, poet, pane gyrist and critic, is an example; so is Dr. Johnson. But a European artist can be appreciated by any foreign reader in an adequate translation, that is, a translation approximating to what the author would have written in that language.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Five Russian Plays: With One From the Ukrainian Translated From the Originals, With an Introduction Von Vizin, the first real Russian dramatist, comes in the rank of European artists. He is in everything Russian; his subject, characters and treatment are all Russian, but his plays are written with that brilliant common-sense Which may be regarded as the characteristic of the European artist. It is well worth pointing out how his work, coming to an end during the first period of the French Revolution, approaches in spirit the work of the other authors in this book, who wrote a round century after him. This phenomenon IS Similar to much that can be observed not only in Russian art, but in Russian politics and society.
