Myler Wilkinson shows, as no other critic before has done, how the 'figures' of classic Russian fiction have become part of the American literary tradition through writers such as James, Cather, Anderson, and Hemingway. The Dark Mirror', comprised of solid scholarship and good clear writing, will be important reading for Americanists and teachers of comparative literature alike. I haven't been as involved with, or rewarded by, a book for a long time. Hardcover: 189 pages.

The Dark Mirror/Tjomnoje Zerkalo. American Literary Response to Russia. Series: Comparative Cultures and Literatures. Scholarly interest in the relationship between Russia and America has most often focused on a dialectic of social and political difference. Distinct from this approach, The Dark Mirror explores the way in which American literary identities have emerged out of intense dialogue with Russian culture. Drawing on the ideas of Mikhail Bakhtin, the study traces the historical connections that have drawn American writers into the orbit of Russian literature and culture during the period 1860-1917.

Russian literature initially engaged with European literary currents by means of cultural transposition or appropriation via the dominant French culture of the age of works, themes and motifs of various origins. From the 19th century, translation in the strict sense of the word became more important, making a decisive contribution to Russian Romanticism. That trend continued in the first half of the 20th century in another major new stage in the development of Russian literature, the Silver Age, whose chief exponents also made a key contribution as translators.

American literature is literature written or produced in the United States of America and its preceding colonies (for specific discussions of poetry and theater, see Poetry of the United States and Theater in the United States)

American literature is literature written or produced in the United States of America and its preceding colonies (for specific discussions of poetry and theater, see Poetry of the United States and Theater in the United States). Before the founding of the United States, the British colonies on the eastern coast of the present-day United States were heavily influenced by English literature. The American literary tradition thus began as part of the broader tradition of English literature.

Scholarly interest in the relationship between Russia and America has most often focused on a dialectic of social and political difference. Distinct from this approach, The Dark Mirror explores the way in which American literary identities have emerged out of intense dialogue with Russian culture. Drawing on the ideas of Mikhail Bakhtin, the study traces the historical connections that have drawn American writers into the orbit of Russian literature and culture during the period 1860-1917. Individual chapters are devoted to Henry James, Willa Cather, and Sherwood Anderson as each reads the figures of Russian literature against a native American tradition. The concluding chapter initiates discussion on the ways in which literary influence is bound up with a dialogue shaped by the needs of social identity and political power.
