Book Description :

The "texts" of Russian artist and thinker Daniil Kharms (1905-1942) were so many and varied and often unique (narrative, dramatic, philosophical, poetic, mathematical, pictographic, diagrammatic, musical, biographical) that they defied categorization—and, thus, thorough study or appreciation—through much of the twentieth century. This book, the first in English to view Kharms’s oeuvre in its entirety, is also the first to offer a complete, inclusive, and coherent understanding of the overall project of this artist and writer now considered a major figure in the modernist canon of Europe.

Book Description :

From the country that has added to our vocabulary such colorful terms as "purges," "pogroms," and "gulag," this collection investigates the conspicuous marks of violence in Russian history and culture. Russians and non-Russians alike have long debated the reasons for this endemic violence. Some have cited Russia's huge size, unforgiving climate, and exposed geographical position as formative in its national character, making invasion easy and order difficult. Others have fixed the blame on cultural and religious traditions that spurred internecine violence or on despotic rulers or unfortunate episodes in the nation's history, such as the Mongol invasion, the rule of Ivan the Terrible, or the "Red Terror" of the revolution. Even in contemporary Russia, the specter of violence continues, from widespread mistreatment of women to racial antagonism, the product of a frustrated nationalism that manifests itself in such phenomena as the wars in Chechnya. Times of Trouble is the first in English to explore the problem of violence in Russia. From a variety of perspectives, essays investigate Russian history as well as depictions of violence in the visual arts and in literature, including the works of Fyodor Dostoevsky, Isaac Babel, Mikhail Lermontov, and Nina Sadur. From the Mongol invasion to the present day, topics include the gulag, genocide, violence against women, anti-Semitism, and terrorism as a tool of revolution.

Book Description :

What is the literary absurd? What are its key textual features? How can it be analysed? How do different readers respond to absurdist literature?Taking the theories and methodologies of stylistics as its underlying analytical framework, Reading the Absurd tackles each of these questions. Selected key works in English literature are examined in depth to reveal significant aspects of absurd style. Its analytical approach combines stylistic inquiry with a cognitive perspective on language, literature and reading which sheds new light on the human experience of literary reading.By exploring the literary absurd as a linguistic and experiential phenomena, while at the same time reflecting upon its essential historical and cultural situation, Joanna Gavins brings a new perspective to the absurd aesthetic.

DOWNLOAD

Book Description :

In the post-Soviet period, discussions of "postmodernism" in Russian literature have proliferated. Based on close literary analysis of representative works of fiction by three post-Soviet Russian writers – Vladimir Sorokin, Vladimir Tuchkov and Aleksandr Khurgin – this book investigates the usefulness and accuracy of the notion of "postmodernism" in the post-Soviet context. Classic Russian literature, renowned for its pursuit of aesthetic, moral and social values, and the modernism that succeeded it have often been seen as antipodes to postmodernist principles. The author wishes to dispute this polarity and proposes "post-Soviet neo-modernism" as an alternative concept. "Neo-modernism" embodies the notion that post-Soviet writers have redeemed the tendency of earlier literature to seek the meaning of human existence in a transcendent realm, as well as in the treasures of Russia's cultural past.

Book Description :

What is the relation of Soviet culture to Russian culture? How does a Soviet poet differ from a Russian poet? Sarah Pratt traces these interwoven questions in the work of Nikolai Zabolotsky, a figure ranking just behind Pasternak, Mandelstam, and Akhmatova in modern Russian poetry and the first major poet to come to light in the Soviet period. The book identifies a "Soviet" impulse, marked by a veneer of Marxist ideology and political acceptability, and a "Russian" impulse that reflects prerevolutionary mores and the cultural bedrock of Russian Orthodoxy. Because of this apparent split, and because Zabolotsky's career was punctuated by a term in a prison camp that emphasized the differences between his early and late works, the poet has often come across as enigmatic and politically suspect. Pratt, however, demonstrates an underlying continuity in Zabolotsky's work, which embodies the mixture of brash iconoclasm and indelibly embedded tradition that shaped the culture of his homeland for most of the twentieth century.The book focuses on selected moments that both reflect basic impulses within Russian culture and define major aspects of Zabolotsky's individual poetic identity. While recognizing the apparent contradictions in Zabolotsky's life and works, Pratt delineates four cultural constants that inform his poetic vision: a sense of "half-peasant" identity; a worldview steeped in Russian Orthodoxy; a strong bond to Russian and western European literary tradition; and an unflinching recognition of Soviet reality. Presenting close readings of poems and numerous relevant documents, the book examines Zabolotsky's contribution to the avant-garde Oberiu group; his responses to Symbolism,Acmeism, and contemporary painting; his complex relationship to Russian Orthodoxy; and his awareness of the inescapable political dimensions of his time. In the end, Pratt argues it was precisely the contradictions that made

Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

"The tradition of Russian tragifarce can be characterized by its strong links to Russian political and cultural history and by its significant role in the development of Russian dramatic literature and theater practice. The book argues that the dualistic character of Russian tragifarce, which is close in spirit and philosophy to Bakhtin's understanding of the medieval carnival, embodies the ambivalent spirit of Russian culture and politics. The book further argues that the tragifarcical perception of the world can be seen as a national characteristic of the self-doubting and ironic Russian sensibility under the influence of a repressive political regime."--BOOK JACKET.

Book Description :

This book examines the work of five Soviet prose writers - Olesha, Platonov, Kharms, Bulgakov and Vaginov - in the light of the carnivalesque elements of Russian popular culture. It shows that while Bakhtin's account of carnival culture sheds considerable light on the work of these writers, they need to be considered with reference to both the concrete forms of Russian and Soviet popular culture and the changing institutional framework of Soviet society in the 1920s and 1930s.
