Über diesen Titel:
The plot moves from Peredonov’s petty quest for a promotion to arson and murder via one of the most incredible and uproarious scandal scenes in world literature, the masquerade attended by the boy Sasha dressed as a beautiful geisha. The electricity of the relationship between androgynous, pubescent Sasha and the lovely Lyudmilla, with her exotic perfumes, caresses, and lubricious fantasies, never fails to hold the reader’s attention.
Even in its censored form, The Petty Demon is one of the most provocative and sexually open of the Russian literary cannon. Sologub removed many passages (fifteen percent of the text) that would have been unacceptable at the time of publication. These sections are restored in this edition, so that the reader can experience the novel as it was originally written.
Über den Autor: By profession a schoolteacher and a poet, one of the earliest Russian symbolists, Fyodor Sologub (1863-1927) began his literary career in 1896 with a volume of verse, a collection of tales, and a novel, Bad Dreams, which described the squalid existence of a schoolmaster. His masterpiece of fiction is the novel The Petty Demon. Sologub remained in the Soviet Union after the revolution but, opposed to the Bolsheviks, lapsed into silence.
