Beyond the Flesh: Alexander Blok, Zinaida Gippius, and the Symbolist Sublimation of Sex

by JeniferPresto (Author)

Synopsis

Though the Russian Symbolist movement was dominated by a concern with transcending sex, many of the writers associated with the movement exhibited a preoccupation with matters of the flesh. This book documents the often unexpected form that this obsession with gender and the body took in the life and art of Alexander Blok and Zinaida Gippius.
