Since he doesn't seem to have been mentioned in this group (and in fact is too little known in general), I thought I'd link to my post on Konstantin Leontiev, a very interesting author:

Interesting piece. Alas, I can't see any of his works in English, which is frustrating...

>1 languagehat: My interest in Leontiev was peaked some time ago after reading that he's considered to be a sort of Russian proto-Decadent Nietzschephile, tags certain to catch my attention. It seems like he might be a Russian Orthodox counterpart to Léon Bloy's "Nietzschean" Catholicism from the same period....?

Unfortunately I had to balk at purchasing The Egyptian Dove and Against the Current only after reading somewhere that they were poorly translated, something I can't judge not knowing Russian. Have you read either of those two translations? If so, what did you think? Regardless, your blog essay has me thinking that I'll have to find out for myself.

No, these days I only read Russian lit in Russian, so I can't help with that, but if someone said they were poorly translated, they probably were -- it's a common problem, alas.
