- Sarah J. Young’s third lecture on Russian thought is about the Westernizers (Belinskii, Gertsen, Stankevich, Bakunin, Ogarev) and her fourth is about the radical critics/nihilists/revolutionary democrats (Chernyshevskii, Dobroliubov, Pisarev). Languagehat reads #3 and adds a quote from Gertsen.
- Languagehat also points to Gary Saul Morson on Chekhov.
- I had never thought much about odors in Russian history, and I wonder how much is knowable.
- “…на тридцати досках Уиджа.”
