Nikolai Mikhailovich Karamzin in Germany; fiction as facts.


Nikolai Mikhailovich Karamzin in Germany; fiction as facts.

Panofsky, Gerda S.



181 pages



Opera Slavica; Neue Folge; 52


Panofsky (Princeton U.) describes the journey that Russian writer Karamzin (1766-1826) took through Germany, Switzerland, and England from May 1789 until September 1790, and the famous Letters of a Russian Traveller that his journal of the trip became. She is particularly interested in events that he did not describe, or events that he did but that never happened. Her perspectives are on the road through Germany, the arrival in Berlin, the Russian veteran in Potsdam, and the autographs in the Staatsbibliothek Berlin.
