Realms of Exile brings together authors writing on diverse themes of Eastern European exile. The book defines the experiential and linguistic peculiarities of exiled people who share similar cultural, geographical, and mythological backgrounds and who have suffered under totalitarian rule. The contributions discuss a variety of media--from the soulful melodies of the Russian gypsies to the delicate sensuousness of Kieslowski's films--as the authors treat some of the most crucial issues of our times, such as political dissent and resistance, the fractured self, alienation, and émigré consciousness. Realms of Exile is interdisciplinary and cross-cultural scholarship at its best, casting new light on the many nuances and variations of many of the cultures and ethnic groups of Eastern Europeans.
