Professor Marten's Departure

  • Estonian: Professor Martensi arasoit
  • Type: Book

Written in a classic elegiac style reminiscent of Giuseppe di Lampedusa's The Leopard, Professor Marten's Departure evokes the complex world of czarist Russian society at the turn of the century. The character of Professor Martens is based on an actual official of the czarist reign, Friedrich Martens, a distinguished Estonian jurist curiously reminiscent of Henry Kissinger.
