Kornei Chukovsky

Yale University Press

This is an abridged version of Kornei Chukovsky's diary, a voluminous document spanning seven decades and three generations (1901–1969), beginning in pre-revolutionary Russia and encompassing almost the entire Soviet era. Contained in twenty-nine notebooks, the diary is a commentary on some of the most important historical events of the period, including the Russian Revolution of 1917. Chukovsky also writes about the literary ferment that began in the late 1950s and persisted into the early 1960s, and how he listened closely and avidly to the new voices in Russian literature. In addition, he speaks about censorship under Joseph Stalin, and describes his friendship with such major literary figures as Anna Akhmatova and Isaac Babel.
