Angels : An Endangered Species by Malcolm Godwin

The Golovyov Family is a thought-provoking and powerfully written novel. Recognized as a classic since its first publication in Russia in 1880, it recounts the history of a family of landowners through three generations. In a letter written shortly after the books publication, the author reflected that I wrote The Golovyov Family as an attack on the family principle. As Russian scholar Carl Proffer wrote: Gogol has been passed from school to school for thirteen decades. Even Bulgakov, who regarded Saltykov-Shchedrin as his teacher, who is the most satirical writer after Saltykov, and whose main works were unpublished until ten years ago, has been written about by representatives of many different critical sects. That Saltykovs works have not had this kind of appeal is somewhat puzzling... Even a Freudian novice could work Oedipal themes out of the autobiographical elements in The Golovlyov Family (Saltykov and his Mother), and the Tartu University school could draw complex diagrams to show how The Golovlyov Family is that most wonderful of all things, a unified whole. it is time that Saltykov stopped being the exclusive property of critics whose primary concerns are sociological or historical. As the reader of The Golovlyov Family will see-with considerable pleasure-Saltykovs prose has much more to offer than that.
