Цензурная политика А. С. Шишкова и история пушкинских изданий 1825–1826 годов

Русская литература. 2019. № 3. С. 63-73.

The article focuses on the institutional interactions between the literary field and the institutions of the Ministry of Public Education in 1824–1826. In this context, the author explores the editorial and censorial background of the first chapter of Eugene Onegin (1825) and Poems by A. Pushkin (Stikhotvoreniia Alexandra Pushkina, 1826), and argues that Minister Shishkov played a significant role in the emergence of both editions. Moreover, the newly discovered official letter by Shishkov, regarding the unwelcome publication of Pushkin’s Poems at the departmental printing house, allows to clarify the censorial history of one more prominent edition of the period — Eda
and The Feasts (Piry) by E. Baratynskiy (1826).
