Philosophical and Aesthetic Constants of North-American Literature in the Dynamics of its Literary Trends / ex. ed. E.A. Stetsenko, ed. A.P. Urakova. Moscow, IWL RAS Publ., 2019. 336 p.
Ex. editor: Ekaterina A. Stetsenko
Editors: Alexandra P. Urakova
Keywords: American literature, synergetic theory, literary schools, ideological and aesthetical constants, canon dialectics
Abstract:

This book considers the dynamics of change of literary trends in the USA literature in the light of an actual synergetic theory where the literary process appears as unsteady and unlinear, in the every point giving the new picture that can be reconstructed only taking in account the whole sum of its phenomena. Such approach allows to investigate the development of the American literature in the historical movement of its specific constant features that form this or that trends. The dynamics of trends is analyzed both in synchronous and diachronic key. Parallel with the linear approach that makes an accent on removability of trends and styles, the archeological one is also employed — it deals with the neighbor and heterogeneous strata of national culture in their dynamic interaction. This work examines only some themes, ideological and aesthetic constants, genres, problems and authors of the American literature, but they seem to be important and demonstrative for the whole picture of national literary process. For the first time are investigated the role and evolution of the categories of due and real, the phenomenon of correlation of sentimental and romantic, the movement of the narrator’s point of view from romanticism to modernism, the dialectics of canon as literary factor, transformation of the model of black race in the mainstream literary tradition, genesis of postmodern detective, the influence of English romanticism on the American poetry (on the example of the poetry of R.P. Warren), synthesis of various trends in the works of W. Faulkner that demonstrates the common tendency of the contemporary literature.

Author: Svetlana G. Semyonova
Svetlana G. Semyonova. God’s Foolishness of Preaching: Andrei Platonov’s Metaphysic and Poetics. Ed. and prefaced by A.G. Gacheva. Moscow, IWL RAS Publ., 2020. 624 p.
Abstract:

The book of a famous Russian literature researcher and philosopher Svetlana Grigorievna Semyonova (1941–2014) deals with Andrei Platonov, the most metaphysical writer of the 20th century. The study covers the main body of his prose and drama, from the stories “Epifan Locks”, “Ethereal Tract” and “The Sea of Youth” to the novels Chevengur and Happy Moscow, from the short stories of the 1920-ies to the war prose, from the play “The Hurdy Gurdy” to the grotesque satirical mystery “Noah’s Ark”. S.G. Semyonova relies on her own methodology whereby literature is a figurative and artistic form of the philosophic acquisition of reality where metaphysics is inextricably linked with poetics. She examines Platonov’s “idea of life”, fundamental constants of his worldview (death, affinity, memory, Eros, body, substance of being, etc.), taking a close look at the deepest levels of the text, its plots, images, style, specific features and details of the author’s artistic world. In the second part of the book there are two S.G. Semyonova’s articles representing attempts made in different times to describe Platonov’s “repetitive” and “permanent” ideals, make a philosophical outline of his works. In the final part of the book there is S.G. Semyonova’s interviews and a collection of her diary records showing how the Platonov’s “idea of life” and Fyodorov’s idea of resurrection, reconstruction of panhuman relationship are evolving side by side in the life of one of the leading Russian Platonov scholars and, at the same time, a publisher/researcher of N.F. Fyodorov’s heritage. The book is intended for philologists and philosophers, teachers and students interested in the history of Russian culture.

Keywords: Old Russian literature, Time of Troubles, cycle, macro- and micropoetics, genre forms, tradition, innovation

Author: Yulia U. Kaskina
Yulia U. Kaskina. I.S. Shmelev and Russian Classics of the 19th Century. I.S. Turgenev, A.P. Chehov, F.M. Dostoevsky. Moscow, IWL RAS Publ., 2019. 160 p.
Keywords: Russian literature of the 19th-20th centuries, literary succession, tradition, innovation, I.S. Shmelev, I.S. Turgenev, F.M. Dostoevsky, A.P. Chekhov
Abstract:

The monograph deals with I.S. Shmelev’s works in the light of traditions of the Russian literature of the19th century. Literary continuity is demonstrated at the descriptive, genre and typological levels on examples of some I.S. Shmelev’s works and specific texts of I.S. Turgenev, A.P. Chehov and F.M. Dostoevsky. The author convincingly shows that Shmelev is not only a worthy successor of the traditions of Russian classics but also an artistic innovator who developed and enriched it with his own artistic methods, deep ideas and bright images. New meanings are found out in Shmelev’s stories and novels and deep contextual layers are discovered. Shmelev’s publicist works concerning these authors when he acts as a gifted literary critic is seriously considered. It is particularly important to note that a creatively learned tradition gets new meanings, reinforces the link of time and stabilizes.
