Abstract (English)

"At the beginning of the Second World War, the book-length manuscript of Mikhail Bakhtin's The Bildungsroman [Novel of Education] (1936-38) existed in two copies; one, the final draft, was at Sovetsky pisatel, the house that was preparing the book for publication, and an early draft, which he retained. As the publisher's copy would form the basis of the printed edition, Bakhtin repurposed his copy as cigarette paper (in short supply) and, it is said, smoked it away over the course of the war. Alas, in the siege of Moscow, the editorial offices of Sovetsky pisatel (and the manuscript) were destroyed." -- p. [4] of cover.
