A few quick links in between episodes of “The Old Man”:
- Everyone here should put this new blog in their RSS reader.
- There’s a new nineteenth-century journal, Dawn (Заря), in the links on the right. To me it will always be the journal where Pisemskii felt, when most of one novel was already printed, that he had to write to Strakhov for guidance on what ideological points he should shoehorn in at the end. It also has plenty of Fet and Tiutchev and Maikov.
- Don’t miss Languagehat tracing a line from the earliest Tolstoi writing about the siege of Sevastopol to Tolstoi writing something similar differently in War and Peace.
