Non-Russians don't necessarily know they should be interested. The Shrike Send a noteboard - 04/04/2017 12:35:49 PM

I posted the review in Russian because I didn't expect any non-Russian speakers to be interested but after Cannoli posted a bad Google translate I decided to translate the whole thing into English.

He really should have gotten the Nobel for Literature over some others. Dylan for instance.

The problem of what does and doesn't get translated into other languages. If I were a non-Russian, I don't think I would know about him. When learning about Russian literature in college (university for you non-Americans), I do not recall him being mentioned. I only know of him from my own readings for fun.
