About this product
- DescriptionThe first single volume in English on this rich topic, Under the Sky of My Africa addresses the wide variety of interests implicated in the question of Pushkin's blackness - race studies, politics, American studies, music, mythopoetic criticism, and mainstream Pushkin studies. In essays that are by turns biographical, icographical, cultural, and sociological in focus, the authors - representing a broad range of disciplines and perspectives - take us from the complex attitudes toward race in Russia during Pushkin's era to the surge of racism in late Soviet and post-Soviet contemporary Russia. In sum, Under the Sky of My Africa provides a wealth of basic material on the subject as well as a series of provocative readings and interpretations that will influence future considerations of Pushkin and race in Russian culture.
