Küchlya (1925), the first novel of the great Russian formalist Yury Tynyanov gives us a vividly written and moving recreation of the childhood, youth, beliefs and adventures of an eccentric and idealistic young poet and friend of Pushkin, tragically caught up in the Decembrist insurrection of 1825 against the Russian autocracy.
