Alexander Herzen, 1812-70 (Prominent Figures of Slav Culture)

£100.00

Product description

This book is signed by the author 'To Peter', dated June 1985. It is in excellent condition, apart from slight wear in on the cover, in the corner. It has attractive card wraps, and its pages are clean, tight and unmarked.

This is one of a series of UNESCO monographs on Prominent Figures of Slav Culture. This volume in the series is devoted to Alexander Ivanovich Herzen, the great Russian writer, philosopher and revolutionary of the nineteenth century, and was prepared by Professor Monica Partridge of the University of Nottingham. The illustrations were supplied by the A. Herzen Museum in Moscow.

Alexander Ivanovich Herzen was one of the most energetic and gifted men of nineteenth-century Russia. Born in Moscow a few weeks after Napoleon's invasion of Russia, he died in Paris not long before the setting up of the Commune. After 1847 he lived as an exile in Europe, making his home in London for thirteen years. He attracted into the circle of his friends eminent men and brilliant minds from almost every country in Europe. Though he lived entirely abroad after 1847, his personal influence in Russia until the mid-1860s was enormous, especially among those who were still young men; he inspired them with a vigour and a sense of mission unknown to his own generation. It would be difficult to find a man whose life was more closely interwoven with history. He did not merely observe and astutely interpret it; he made and was made by it. Events of European history directly affected both the course of his personal life and the development of his thought. Napoleon's advance on Moscow in 1812, the accession and death of Nicholas I, the European revolutions of 1848 with the intellectual and political storms that followed, the Act of Serf Emancipation in Russia and the Polish uprising of 1863 were as crucial in the evolution of Herzen's life and thought as they were crucial in history.
