Josef Dobrovský and the Origins of the "Igorʹ Tale"
Distributed by Harvard University Press for the Harvard Ukrainian Research Institute and the Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies, 2003 - Literary Criticism - 541 pages
This controversial and groundbreaking book revisits the origins of one of the most beloved works of East Slavic literature, the Slovo o polku Igoreve (the Igor' Tale). Keenan delves into the history of the publication of the Tale and produces a meticulous analysis of its language in order to demonstrate that the text is not an authentic twelfth-century document. Rather, Keenan argues that it is a product of the late eighteenth century, created by the Bohemian scholar Josef Dobrovsky'. Keenan's thought-provoking insights into the creation and publication of the Tale will spark scholarly debate for many years.
