Sanin (novel)

Summary
Sanine (Санин) is a novel by the Russian writer Mikhail Artsybashev. The book was written in 1907–at a time of a horrific political reaction to enormous changes in Russian society (democratic activities, first democratically elected Duma in 1906, as well as the Russian Revolution of 1905). Russian society was heavily influenced by the Russian Orthodox Church and to lesser extent Catholicism, Judaism, and Islam, none of which condoned an open expression of sexuality. By 1908 the novel was no longer being produced due to censorship. It was banned as a "work of pornography". When Artsybashev emigrated to Poland after the Russian Revolution of 1917, he was condemned by the Soviet authorities and his books were banned from publication. They were revived in the 1990s.
