Red Virgin Soil from the Author: Robert A. Maguire. "Red Virgin Soil is a detailed study of the eponymous journal that was the most significant Soviet literary journal of the 1920's. The journal published belles lettres, theory, and criticism and represented the first serious attempt in Russia in nearly half a century to shape an entire generation of writers, readers, and critics through the energy and authority of such a forum." "Maguire's work is also a survey of Soviet literary culture in that critical period between the end of the Civil War and the onslaught of the Stalinist era, a period when writers could still engage in public debate about literature's role in the building of a revolutionary culture." --Book Jacket.

Virgin Soil Upturned from the Author: Mikhail Aleksandrovich Sholokhov. Mikhail Sholokhov is rightly considered both in his own country and abroad the foremost Soviet novelist of his generation. Born in 1905, in a working Cossack family, Sholokhov?s most impressionable years were those of the Russian Revolution and Civil War, which he had described with penetrating insight. In 1926, he began his great epic of the Civil War And Quite Flows the Don, and, to use his own words,"found himself" as a writer "in that arduous and joyful creative work". And Quite Flows the Don was completed in 1940. The first book of Virgin Soil Upturned came out in 1932. The second was competed in 1960. In 1957 Sholokhov wrote a story, The Fate of a Man, which has become world famous. Also, he was working on They Fought for Their Country, a novel about Soviet people in the Second World War. Sholokhov is truly a writer of the people. His books have been printed in more than thirty-two million copies and translated into sixty-four languages. Through the scene is set in a small Cossack village, Sholokhov?s scope is no less great than in his other work, for the fate of his characters is the fate of a whole nation undergoing the greatest social revolution in its history. A process of change had been set afoot that was to spread into every corner of Cossack life. Outworn traditions and habits were swept aside, personalities and ideas that had taken generations to form were either broken or made anew and all this in the face of bitter opposition from those who could not or would not change. With a telling humanity Sholokhov depicts the faults and strivings, the suffering and laughter both of the fighters for progress with whom he himself has such deep ties, and their opponents. This book has a fundamental message for those who wish to understand the stresses and strains of Soviet life from the 1930's to the present day.

Virgin Soil from the Author: Ivan Sergeevich Turgenev. INTRODUCTION TURGENEV was the first writer who was able, having both Slavic and universal imagination enough for it, to interpret modern Russia to the outer world, and Virgin Soil was the last word of his greater testament. It was the book in which many English readers were destined to make his acquaintance about a generation ago, and the effect of it was, like Swinburne's Songs Before Sunrise, Mazzini's Duties of Man, and other congenial documents, to break up the insular confines in which they had been reared and to enlarge their new horizon. Afterwards they went on to read Tolstoi, and Turgenev's powerful and antipathetic fellow-novelist, Dostoievsky, and many other Russian writers: but as he was the greatest artist of them all, his individual revelation of his country's predicament did not lose its effect. Writing in prose he achieved a style of his own which went as near poetry as narrative prose can do. without using the wrong music: while over his realism or his irony he cast a tinge of that mixed modern and oriental fantasy which belonged to his temperament. He suffered in youth, and suffered badly, from the romantic malady of his century, and that other malady of Russia, both expressed in what M. Haumand terms his "Hamletisme." But in Virgin Soil he is easy and almost negligent master of his instrument, and though he is an exile and at times a sharply embittered one, he gathers experience round his theme as only the artist can who has enriched leis art by having outlived his youth without forgetting its pangs, joys, mortifications, and love-songs.

Virgin Soil from the Author: Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev. VIRGIN SOIL by Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev (1818-1883) is his last and longest novel. In it he finally says everything yet unsaid on the subject of social change, idealism and yet futility of revolutions, serfs and peasants, and the upper classes. The hero, Nezhdanov -- the disillusioned young son of a nobleman -- and the Populist movement are young idealists working to bridge the gap between the common people and the nobility, and through them Turgenev works out his own troubled thoughts about social reform and tradition, vitality and stagnation. The ideas of gradual reform shown here are eventually to be supplanted by the extremism of the Russian Revolution -- but that is yet to come.
