Boris Pasternak - Safe Conduct
stanje: vrlo dobro
Prints a six-page introduction by Babette Deutsch, followed by Boris Pasternak`s `Safe Conduct (Autobiography),` three selected stories (Aerial Ways/ Letters from Tula/ The Childhood of Luvers) and `Selected Poems.` Publisher`s advance review slip, listing date of publication, laid into the book (uncommon thus). Boris Pasternak (1890-1960) was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1958.
The awarding of the 1958 Nobel Prize for Literature to Boris Pasternak and the subsequent calumny of his fellow citizens in Soviet Russia focused unusual attention on Pasternak`s great novel, Dr. Zhivago, and the small body of his other work. At the time, the latter was only available (in any language, as far as is known) in New Directions` Selected Writings of Pasternak, first published in 1949. The 1958 edition was issued with a new introduction by Babette Deutsch under the title of the book`s main component, Pasternak`s autobiography.
Written when he was forty, Safe Conduct puzzled many readers in Russia and when it appeared in English, because its isolated sharp impressions and juxtapositions seem to deny chronology, but at least one critic recognized it as `the most original of autobiographies, employing a new technique of great important.`
