Description Pictures of Russian History Russian Literature by Prince Serge Wolkonsky

Excerpt from Pictures of Russian History Russian Literature We have before us a task capable of rendering us diffident in many respects. Within the short limits of a few lectures, I have to unroll before your eyes, and you - if only you agree to follow me - will have to run through the panoramic picture of the historical and literary development of a whole country- a country which extends from the Baltic Sea to the Pacific, from the sunny vineyards of the Crimea facing Asia Minor to the frozen swamps of the Behring coast facing Alaska, from the snow and ice of the Norwegian shores down to the burning sands of Central Asia and to the heights of the Pamirs- a country which in these limits represents a surface of 406,000 square miles, i.e. forty-two times as big as the surface of France, or, to borrow the astronomical comparison of Humboldt, - who thought he could not find the equivalent on earth, - a surface which is equal to the surface of the full moon- a country which takes the seventh part of the terrestrial globe, counts over 120,000,000 inhabitants, and over a thousand years of history. In the few hours at our disposal for the development of our programme, there can be no question of presenting a complete course of Russian history and literature.
