Excerpt from Landmarks in Russian Literature
The chapters in this book on Tolstoy and Tourgeniev, and those on Chekov and Gogol have appeared before. That on Tolstoy and Tourgeniev in The Quarterly Review; those on Chekov and Gogol in The New Quarterly; my thanks are due to the Editors and Proprietors concerned for their kindness in allowing me to reprint these chapters here.
The chapter on Russian Characteristics appeared in St. George's Magazine; the rest of the book is new. In writing it I consulted, besides many books and articles in the Russian language, the following:
The Works of Turgeniev. Translated by Constance Garnett. Fifteen vols. London : Heinemann, 1906.
The Complete Works of Count Tolstoy. Translated and edited by Leo Wiener. Twenty-four vols. London : Dent, 1904-5.
La Roman Russe. By the Vicomtc E. M. de Vogiid. Paris : Plon, 1897.
Tolstoy as Man and Artist: with an Essay on Dostoievski. By Dimitri Merejkowski. London: Constable, 1902.
