Understanding Nadezhda Khvoshshchinskaia’s Short Story Collection An Album: Groups and Portraits: The Literary Innovations of a Nineteenth-Century Writer
By examining the function of fidelity in human relationships and in the mimetic aims of contemporary realist aesthetics, Khvoshshchinskaia reveals the dynamics of domination and control which inform them. This book contains two color photographs.
"Rosneck's work is skilled, thorough, and dedicated and, as she remarks, it is also necessarily exploratory. My hope is that An Album: Groups and Portraits will be translated and taught regularly and that Rosneck's study will inspire more translations of Khvoshchinskaia's works as well as a wider fascination with this elusive and compelling writer." - Prof. Jehanne M. Geith, Duke University
