Acta Slavica Estonica IV. Труды по русской и славянской филологии. Литературоведение, IX.
The present monographic research of the group involved in the project “Russian
Literary Canon Formation”, financed by Estonian Science Foundation
(grant 8471), and their supporters is devoted to the Russian literary canon
and the pedagogical practice of the 19th century. The first part of the book contains
chapters about the general history of school textbooks for reading and the
story of the heritage of two authors (Vyazemsky and Fet) in them. The second
part of the book presents chapters on various Russian poets (Batyushkov, Zhukovsky,
Pushkin, Koltsov, Tyutchev, Maikov) whose poems found a firm place
in the reading materials for schools. The chapters of the monograph give an
idea of different aspects of the history of these texts and their reception.
The monograph has two supplements. In the first there is a list of 108 textbooks
and books of reading which are all included in the unique data base
accessible in the Internet (www.ruthenia.ru/canon). The second supplement
offers a list of the most popular authors and their texts included in the textbooks
of the 19th century.
