The Bunin Seminar at The St Petersburg State University of Culture and Arts has worked out a project devoted to Ivan Bunin’s creative activity (Bunin was the first Russian writer – the winner of the Nobel Prize), namely, the first authentic edition of his book “Dark Alleys”.
Bunin’s works are published from time to time without any research support and textual analysis. There is no “academic edition” (i.e. published by Russian Academy of Science) of Bunin’s works nowadays. Thus, this project will be the first step in preparing the complete academic works.
But the scientific publication requires financial support for studying and analysing of writer’s manuscripts, several trips to the archives.
Will you be so kind to inform us if the Foundation might support our project.
