pdf epub fb2 djvu



Explores how Nabokov eclipsed the achievements of Russian masters of the short story, Anton Chekhov and Ivan Bunin, while in exile from Russia and his native tradition, drawing on unpublished manuscripts and letters. Analyzes the paradigms of Nabokov's poetics and tests them in studies of major stories, delineates the principle historical and cultural texts that shaped his development, and investigates his dialogue with Chekhov and Bunin on the use of narrative closure and the nature of love.
