Inhaltsangabe: A story of family dysfunction, parricide, political terror, conspiracy, and murder, this masterpiece also points to apocalypse and redemption. The world of history—the revolution of 1905—and the world of myth—in the figure of Saturn, who devours his children and in turn is devoured by them—are intertwined. Russia is torn apart by the conflict between revolutions and reaction; at the level of myth, these opposites are indistinguishable. The Ableukhovs, father and son, embody this conflict, but are scions of the same Mongol lineage. The city itself is the child of its autocratic founder, Peter the Great, who maintains his power over it through the agency of his statue, the Bronze Horseman.
Über den Autor: Andrey Bely is the pseudonym of Boris Nikolaevich Bugaev (1880–1934), a novelist, poet, theorist, and literary critic considered to have influenced several literary schools, in particular Symbolism. His influence is often compared to that of James Joyce in the English-speaking world. John Elsworth's work includes books and articles about Andrey Bely, as well as a translation of Bely?s first novel The Silver Dove.
