A Fallen Idol continues to be a God elucidates the historic forte and importance of the seminal nineteenth-century Russian poet, playwright, and novelist Mikhail Iurevich Lermontov (1814-1841). It does so through demonstrating that Lermontov's works illustrate the of dwelling in an epoch of transition. Lermontov's specific epoch was once that of post-Romanticism, a time while the twilight of Romanticism used to be dimming however the sunrise of Realism had but to seem. via shut and comparative readings, the publication explores the singular metaphysical, mental, moral, and aesthetic ambiguities and ambivalences that mark Lermontov's works, and tellingly mirror the transition out of Romanticism and the character of post-Romanticism. total, the booklet finds that, even though restricted to his transitional epoch, Lermontov didn't succumb to it; as an alternative, he probed its personality and evoked its ancient import. And the ebook concludes that Lermontov's works have resonance for our transitional period within the early twenty-first century as well.
