This section of the Fundamental Digital Library is devoted to Russian literature of the 18th century. Individual Digital Scholarly Editions (DSE) form the foundation of the section. Each DSE accumulates information on a single author, the bulk of whose literary career falls between 1700 and 1800. The DSE include the most authoritative editions of an author's collected works, special scholarly editions of individual works, memoirs, criticism written during the author's lifetime, biographical and literary-critical studies, a detailed scholarly chronology of the author's life and works, and bibliographies of the author's works and literature about the author. A reference apparatus which integrates all the constituent DSE appears in a separate sub-section.
