This book is a study devoted to exploring the use of a Russian version of the Jewish stereotype (the ridiculous Jew) in the works of three of the greatest writers of the nineteenth century. Rosenshield does not attempt to expose the stereotype—which was self-consciously and unashamedly employed. Rather, he examines how stereotypes are used to further the very different artistic, cultural, and ideological agendas of each writer. What distinguishes this book from others is that it explores the problems that arise when an ethnic stereotype is so fully incorporated into a work of art that it takes on a life of its own, often undermining the intentions of its author as well as many of the defining elements of the stereotype itself. With each these writers, the Jewish stereotype precipitates a literary transformation, taking their work into an uncomfortable space for the author and a challenging one for readers.

Poet and novelist Karolina Karlovna Pavlova (or Caroline von Pawloff, as she signed her works and letters during the German period of her life) is remembered as one of the major writers of Russia's middle Golden Age. In the West, specifically in the United States and Germany, interest in Pavlova has been growing quietly for twenty years.The essays in this volume, by scholars in the U.S., Russia, and Germany, range widely not only over Pavlova's oeuvre but also in their analytical stances. The volume includes close poetic and prosodic analysis, literary history, gender studies, intertextual comparison, and biography. Pavlova was a brilliant lyric poet; a masterly translator of Russian, French, and German poetic works; and the author of A Twofold Life, an enigmatic novel about a young woman's coming of age, written in satirical prose and romantically impassioned verse. All these aspects of her work are given detailed attention, especially A Twofold Life, to which four of the essays are devoted. Pavlova's legacy in the works of the major twentieth-century writers Anna Akhmatova, Marina Tsvetaeva, and Mikhail Bulgakov is also discussed.
