“Reader, where are you?”, wondered, in the mid-1880s, Mikhail Saltykov-
Shchedrin, one of the Russian writers that paid the most attention to the
readership of his time. Saltykov-Shchedrin’s call did not go unanswered. Over
the past two centuries, various disciplines – from the social sciences to
psychology, literary criticism, semiotics, historiography and bibliography –
alternately tried to outline the specific features of the Russian reader and
investigate his function in the history of Russian literary civilization. The
essays collected in this volume follow in the tradition but, at the same time,
present new challenges to the development of the discipline. The contributors,
coming from various countries and different cultures (Russia, the US, Italy,
France, Britain), discuss the subject of reading in Russia – from the age of
Catherine II to the Soviet regime – from various perspectives: from aesthetics
to reception, from the analysis of individual or collective practices, to the
exploration of the social function of reading, to the spread and evolution of
editorial formats. The contributions in this volume return a rich and
articulated portrait of a culture made of great readers.
