POPOFF, Eli A.




Author Tags: Doukhobors, Fiction

Along with Koozma Tarasoff, Eli Popoff has long been one of the main Kootenay-based Doukhobor authors. His publications include the novel entitled Tanya and several important works pertaining to Doukhobor history and society. His novel is unusual in that traditionally Doukhoborism encourages a spiritual and economic collectivism that is at odds with the portrayal of a single protagonist.
