Some brief overview of this book

“This is a most impressive and elegantly written book. A Fallen Idol Is Still a God is a wonderfully mature, insightful, and carefully thought-out study of Lermontov’s texts and place in literary history. Specifically, it surpasses earlier studies in the precision and originality of its treatment of Lermontov’s Romanticism.”—William Mills Todd III, Harvard University

“How does one describe a cultural period between two epochs without saying, anachronistically, that things were tending towards where they wound up going? Can one describe the sense that one has outlived one set of practices and visions but not yet arrived at an alternative? Developing her own model of transitional periods, Allen shows how to describe a prominent writers creative efforts when his fallen idol is still a god. In the process, she offers a compelling portrait of Lermontov, brings his works to life in a new way, and demonstrates that some of them are even better than we thought.” —Gary Saul Morson, Northwestern University
