Sologub's writing is both timely and timeless. He shares with his Russian predecessors an intense concern for man and the world. At the core of his work is a rejection of reality, a reality that he depicts as bestial, the creation of the demon in man. At the same time, however, he exalts the energy within the individual - the creative will - and is capable of creating escapist worlds of beauty, legends, and miracles.
