Russkii vestnik 1856

1856 saw the first volumes of Russkii vestnik appear, and as Russian culture began to emerge from the stagnation that characterized the final years of Nicholas I’s rule, the journal began with a strong set of contributors, many of whom then continued to appear in the journal for many years. Literary works include Ostrovsky’s play A Hangover at a Stranger’s Feast, a sizeable selection from Shchedrin’s Provincial Sketches, Evgeniia Tur’s The Old Woman (Tur also contributes an essay on George Sand), and Narskaia’s Family Scenes. There is poetry by A. K. Tolstoy, Konstantin Aksakov, and, to my surprise, Nikolai Ogarev. I didn’t know he could be published openly in Russia at the time, and in any case assumed his political distance from Katkov would have precluded him appearing in Russkii vestnik. While there are articles with a historical focus, such as S. M. Solov’ev on ancient Russia, and on socio-economic subjects, including Boris Chicherin’s essay on village communes in Russia, there is overall a substantial bias towards biography and memoir, with extracts from Sergei Aksakov’s memoirs, Lazhechnikov’s memoirs of Pushkin (the latter also featuring in articles by Katkov), the autobiography of the recently deceased critic and ethnographer Nikolai Nadezhdin, with additions by P. S. Savel’ev, and D. A. Miliutin on Suvorov. The supplements that became such a feature in later years only appear intermittently with the first volumes, but here we have Charlotte M. Yonge’s Heartsease, Or the Brother’s Wife.
