Russian formalism

A metapoetics

Peter Steiner


Thirty years after its first publication, Peter Steiner's erudite, thoughtful book remains a classic study of Russian Formalism. His "metapoetic" analysis offers a simple, clear schema for apprehending the unity of action and dynamic configuration of the Russian formalists's program, while fully respecting the diversity of the cluster of theories they put forward. As such, it also serves as one of the best introductions to a movement that still exerts considerable influence on literary study.
