This book explores the history of the Arzamas, famed as a literary circle, whose interests extended far past literature. In my book I argue that Arzamas members sought liberalization of the Russian state. At its most visionary, the Arzamas project called for the creation of a Pan-European federal system, based on a constitutional form of government in each state. This new political system, as I reconstruct it in my book, was supposed to touch practically every sphere of statecraft, foreign relations, politics, language, and culture. My study, in short, is an attempt to recover the major cultural consequences of this political program. This work is considered to be the first monograph where Arzamas literary program was reconstructed in all its aspects – political, social, aesthetic, and religious.
