about this item

Though Volynsky (Haim Flekser, 1861-1926) was famous as a Symbolist critic of Russian literature, art, and theater, Tolstoy focuses on less known aspects of his creative life: his interest in Jewish themes, his attempts at a Jewish-Christian synthesis, and the original universalist ideas of his last years that centered on the Judaic kernal of his thought. She covers Volynsky in retrospect, a Jewish journalist, toward Tolstoy, Russian critics, against decadence, Dostoevsky, theater, the Jewish side of the argument, and Rembrandt.
