Product description


'Rusinko's study is richly imagined, thoroughly researched, lucidly written. Rusinko deals very thoughtfully with the many specific problems raised by individual works, but she also looks at more general issues. The vivacity, the sheer critical intelligence with which such problems and issues are being posed constitute some of the most outstanding features of this book. The strongest aspects of Literature and Identity in Subcarpathian Rus' are Rusinko's intellectual courage to challenge the long-standing scholarly paradigm that ignores Rusyn literature; her prodigious research, the sine qua non of responsible scholarship; and her sophisticated conceptual framework attentive to current debates in critical theory, particularly postcolonial theory and cultural studies.'

(Halina Filipowicz, Professor of Slavic Languages and Literatures, University of Wisconsin, Madison)
