Russian Literature: Introduction and Reading List



Making a comprehensive guide to Russian literature would be an enormous task. We decided to make a list of our favorite as well as the major writers and list their most interesting works. Apart from Dostoevsky, Chekhov, and Nabokov, we also list lesser known, but very important Russian writers from the 18th and 19th centuries. We also added several modern and contemporary writers whose work is truly inspiring, original, and provides a great insight into Russian culture and people of today.
