Supplement to a bibliography of Russian formalism in English.

This is a supplement to my "Bibliography of Russian Formalism in English," published in a previous bibliographic number of Style (26.4, Winter 1992: 554-76).

The original listing was divided into three sections: the first for English translations of writings by the Formalist critics, the second for English-language writings on the Formalist school, and the third for such miscellaneous but possibly relevant items as (translated) writings by members of the movement dating from later than its dissolution in 1929. This supplement is divided into two major sections: the first listing revisions to entries in the original bibliography, the second listing additions to it (whether of new items or - much the larger group - items that I missed in my first survey). The entries in both of these sections are keyed to the entries and divisions of the 1992 listing, of course, in a way which is (hopefully) sufficiently clear.

As in the original bibliography, the spellings of proper names in Russian, which vary depending on the system of English transliteration used, have been regularized, with some inconsistency as the unavoidable result. (An asterisk indicates an item that I have not seen.) Thanks to Kenneth Morefield for assistance.
