Figures of Memory and Forgetting in Andrei Bitov's Prose

Sven Spieker, Figures of Memory and Forgetting in Andrei Bitov's Prose (Frankfurt/Main: Peter Lang, 1996)

Examines Andrei Bitov's writing as a demonstration of the failure of modernist and pre-modernist models of mnemonic representation. Also at issue are the psychological, aesthetic, and epistemological implications of Bitov's treatment of memory from the immediate postwar period to the late 1990s.
