    Abstract:

    The book represents the collection of reader’s letters addressed to M.A. Sholokhov — it is one of the largest and most unique in the history of Russian literature. These first published readers’ letters, 1929–1955 from the archives of Moscow and Veshenskaya stanitsa (M.A. Sholokhov Museum-Reserve and Sholokhov family archive) recreate in a new way the picture of the historical and literary process of the twentieth century, reveal the content of dialogue between Sholokhov and his readers, expanding and deepening not only the perception of the history of Russian literature of the Soviet era, but also the twentieth century as a whole in Russian culture — as the century of a reader.

    The book is addressed to philologists, historians, sociologists and to a wide general readership.
