Book Association

For this week's Book Association, we're linking Anna Karenina with other novels written in 19th century Russia, otherwise known as the "Golden Era" of Russian literature.

Also a monster read, Dostoyevsky's novel set in St. Petersburg is about murder, suffering and redemption. 

This controversial novel uses the events of one house to illustrate the changes that were coming across all of Russia at the time. 

Puskin is credited with both solidifying the literary Russian language and introducing a new level of artistry to Russian literature. 

Which ones have you read? Are there other examples of the Golden Era that you enjoyed?
