The Mysterious Russian Soul has been the subject of fascination and debate for philosophers, academics and politicians across the globe ever since the concept started taking shape some 200 years ago. While this is not a topic I am eager to tackle quite yet, here’s an engaging, insightful and rather unexpected take by someone who has:
In Russia, where the roles of men and women are still defined by the old hunter vs. childbearer paradigm, this man failed as a man. It’s not just an unlucky day. It’s a drama. Small-scale, but something to reflect upon, find justification for, analyse and write a novel half the weight of War and Peace.
Enjoy, and please come back to let me know what you thought!
