The article presents information on the book "Modern Russian Literature," by Marc Slonim. The evaluation is balanced and objective, the documentation comprehensive. Cognizant of the role which Soviet literature has played as the supreme vehicle for conveying national thought and aspirations, Slonim has wisely endeavored to present an extensive picture of the social, economic and political trends--both in events and in ideas--which this literature has expressed and which have influenced literary styles and credos.
