Luck, Christopher:  
Figures of War and Fields of Honour, Isaak Babel's Red Cavalry

Publisher: Keele, University Press, 1995. (1st Edition).
288pp. " 'Red Cavalry', Isaak Babel's celebrated collection of short stories was preceeded by a brief and little known cycle, also on the theme of war, entitled 'On the Field of Honour'. Babel worked as a war correspondent and journalist during the Russian civil war, between the composition of the two works, and Christopher Luck's analysis of the first cycle and of the diary that Babel kept at the time, together with an examination of the plans and sketches that he made, allows a fascinating masterpiece. It sheds new light on 'Red Cavalry', its fabric of skaz and it's primary narrator, Lyutov. The brilliance of Babel's imagery has been noted by many critics, but this is the first study to provide a detailed statistical and expository analysis of the metaphors which make up that technique. Delving below the often harsh and glittering surface, Luck dissects the brilliance and succinctness, the pithiness and unexpectedness of this aspect of the work of one of the 20th century's greatest short story writers."

The Thing Contained. Theory of the Tragic.

Publisher: Bloomington, Indiana UP [1970].
xi, 177 p. 'In this bold and imaginative study, a young critic formulates a new theory of tragedy, defining it in terms of content (“a hard core of Negative Capacity, a Thing Contained”) rather than by surface characteristics of form. His definition-- tragedy is consummated when the dream of innocence is confronted by the fact of guilt, and acquiesces therein-- is propounded with skill and vigor, with references ranging throughout the history of literature and criticism...'
