J. M. Neale and the Quest for Sobornost


Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses Neale’s short stories, focusing on ‘Erick’s Grave’ and ‘The Story of S. Metrophanes of Voronej’. They are cited as early examples of orientalism in Neale’s fiction. ‘Erick’s Grave’ appeared in a collection entitled Triumphs of the Cross: Tales and Sketches of Christian Heroism. It is about a servant named Erick who sacrificed his life to save his master, Baron Jaroslav, and the master’s family. ‘The Story of S. Metrophanes of Voronej’ describes the final stages of construction of a small palace for Peter the Great near the city of Voronej, where the emperor established shipyards for strengthening the navy.

Keywords:   Voronej, Metrophanes, Erick, Erick’s Grave, Baron Jaroslav, Russia, Peter the Great
