Shklovski, Isaac Vladimirovich


SHKLOVSKI, ISAAC VLADIMIROVICH (pseud. Dioneo ; 1865–1935), Russian writer. Born in Yelizavetgrad (now Kirovograd), he started his literary career at the age of 16, contributing short stories, essays, and reviews for publications in south Russia. He was deported for his political activity to Sredne-Kolymsk, northern Siberia, from 1886 to 1892. There he became intimate with the life of the native population, about which he wrote in his Siberian notes, Na kraynem severo-vostoke Sibiri (1895; In Far North-East Siberia, 1916). In 1896 he moved to London, where he served as correspondent of Russkiye Vedomosti and other Russian journals, thus acquainting the Russian reader with life in England. His articles appeared later as books under such titles as Ocherki sovremennoy Anglii ("Notes on Contemporary England," 1903); Angliyskiye siluety ("English Silhouettes," 1905); and Angliya posle voyny ("Post–War England," 1924).

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
