520    "Andrei Bely is best known for the modernist masterwork 
       Petersburg, a paradigmatic example of how modern writers 
       strove to evoke the fragmentation of language, narrative, 
       and consciousness. In the early twentieth century, Bely 
       embarked on his life as an artist with texts he called 
       "symphonies"-works experimenting with genre and sound, 
       written in a style that shifts among prosaic, poetic, and 
       musical. This book presents Bely's four Symphonies-
       Dramatic Symphony, Northern Symphony, The Return, and 
       Goblet of Blizzards-fantastically strange stories that 
       capture the banality of life, the intimacy of love, and 
       the enchantment of art. The Symphonies are quintessential 
       works of modernist innovation in which Bely developed an 
       evocative mythology and distinctive aesthetics. Influenced
       by Russian symbolism, Bely believed that the role of 
       modern artists was to imbue seemingly small details with 
       cosmic significance. The Symphonies depict the drabness of
       daily life with distinct irony and satire-and then soar 
       out of turn-of-the-century Moscow into the realm of the 
       infinite and eternal. They conjure worlds that resemble 
       our own but reveal elements of artifice and magic, hinting
       at mystical truths and the complete transfiguration of 
       life. Showcasing the protean quality of Bely's language 
       and storytelling, Jonathan Stone's translation of the 
       Symphonies features some of the most captivating and 
       beguiling writing of Russia's Silver Age"--|cProvided by
