My most recent publication is an analysis of a puzzling Romantic tale by Vladimir Odoevsky, “The Sylph” (Slavic and East European Journal, Summer 2011). My ongoing research explores the ways in which Nikolai Gogol’s fictional world is shaped by his preoccupation with the deadly sin of acedia (despondency).
