"Olga Freidenberg, a classic philologist and literary theorist active in Leningrad, has been known in the west mainly for her corroespondence with her cousin Boris Pasternak. That situation is undergoing radical change, as Freidenberg's rich and difficult works are being brought to a wider public by scholars....The present publication is an important addition to the corpus....The rewards are great. Moss does a good job in his introduction of distinguishing Freidenberg's ideas....Given the difficulties of Freidenberg's style, Moss's translation is an impressive accomplishment."
