9781906540555: Turning into Sterne: Viktor Shklovskii and Literary Reception (Studies in Comparative Literature)

Viktor Shklovskii (1893-1984) is best known as an inventor of Russian Formalism, the literary theorist responsible for ostranenie, defamiliarisation. Just after the 1917 Revolution, Shklovskii claimed Tristram Shandy to be 'the most typical novel in world literature'. He then proceeded to theorise Sterne's formal experiments with plot, to chronicle his own wartime exploits in an autobiographical 'Sentimental Journey', and to promote Tristram Shandy as a prototype for the new Soviet novel. His reading of Tristram Shandy and his lifelong relationship with its author, Laurence Sterne (1713-1769), were of enormous importance to Shklovskii, whose theory of prose remains current in Western academia. As Finer shows, they can tell us much not only about Shklovskii but also the extended, tangled ways of literary reception, and translation.

About the Author:

Emily Finer teaches Russian literature at the University of St Andrews.

Review:

In [Finer’s] own inventive readings, the impact of Sterne and English eighteenth-century narrative experiments is dominant in Shklovskii’s journalism and fiction of the mid 1920s. The overt play with convention evident in his non- fiction, as in his novels, exemplifies in a double sense the khod konia ― both the knight’s move of artistic indirection and the hobby horse of Shandean digressions. (Dale E. Peterson Slavonic and East European Review, 89.4, October 2011, 720-21)
