    Azarov Yury A., editor. The Great Patrionic War 1941–1945: Literature and History. Moscow, IWL RAS Publ., 2020. 688 p.
    Ex. editor: Yuri A. Azarov
    Keywords: The Great Patrionic War, Russian Literature, World Literature, Archival Materials.
    Abstract:

    In the collective monography the actual problem of contemporary perception of the Great Patriotic War of 1941–1945 is considered – both in Russian literature, literature of the peoples of Russian Federation and in literatures of foreign countries. The authors’ attention is focused on the most characteristic features and the main trends in interpretation of military topics in a broad chronological framework: they cover not only the years of World War II, but also the pre-war and post-war peri- ods. The book touches upon such important issues as the attitude of A.M. Gorky to the war, the role of writers who became front-line correspondents, their diaries, notebooks and memoirs as primary sources of literary works. The features of the interpretation of military theme in Russian émigré literature, the attitude of Russian émigré writers to fascism, their participation in French Resistance movement are analyzed. There are also articles devoted to perception of the experience of World War II and its consequences in literatures of foreign countries. The subject of articles covers not only individual works, but also affects the sources and textual aspects of the study of the problems under discussion. It includes a comparative analysis of archival materials and features of their reflection in war poetry and prose. A large number of previously unknown documents is introduced into scientific circulation. Here lies the novelty of the collective monography and its main difference from the previously published works on military theme in literature. The authors analyzed the manuscripts from various archives: of A.M. Gorky, A.P. Platonov, A.N. Tolstoy, IMLI RAN, FSB, materials of the Soviet Academy of Sciences Commission on His- tory of the Great Patriotic war.

    The book includes five parts. This division is due to desire to reflect the diversity of genres in literature devoted to the war, its importance in contemporary historical context, its international character and how the theme of war analyzed by literary critics from different countries. In some articles the prose of war participants is analyzed, at the same time its originality, documentary character, aspiration to epic meaning is noted. Generally speaking, this book touches on the problem of contem- porary understanding of the events of war in literature in comparison with how this topic was interpreted earlier.

    Kazbek K. Sultanov. The Angle of Refraction. Literature and Identity: the Communicative Aspect. Moscow, IWL RAS Publ., 2019. 352 p.
    Keywords: Literature of the peoples of Russia, dynamic model of identity, national literature, national diversity, historical memory
    Abstract:

    The modern study of the literatures of the peoples of Russia needs to develop a new research paradigm overcoming the disunity of ethnocultural, axiological and communicative discourses. The complementarity and adequacy of “identity” and “communicativeness” concepts is the main theme of the monograph shaping its internal unity.

    In the post-Soviet period the tendency of narrowing of the dialogical space prevailed. Literary studies lost interest to the typological convergence and “the unity of the different”. But the communicative function is not only a necessary condition for the complete characteristic of a national literature but also a substantial factor of the inner-literature evolution.

    The book argues for the dynamical identity model not ignoring the presence of “the other” and his/her adherence to another cultural tradition. Special attention is paid to the reception of a world of another nation, the problem of correlation of national diversity and artistic value, the imperative of historical memory in national literatures.

    For philologists, culturologists and historians.

    Albina S. Zhuleva. Mythopoetical World Model in Nenets Literature. Moscow, IWL RAS Publ., 2019. 328 p.
    Keywords: Nenets literature, space, time, primordial images, mythopoetics
    Abstract:

    The book presents a new view on the mythological background underlying the creative codes and the artistic worldview of the authors of the unique Nenets literature in the 20th and the beginning of the 21st centuries. In building a mythopoetical world model in Nenets literature the explication of symbols expressing the people’s metaphysical view on existence and cognition is created. The book shows how the archetypes possessing the transcendental power of return and influence, as well as the myths and original concepts of the universe, space and time, logos, numbers, animals and the surrounding nature they had given rise to realize their meanings as the text elements (plots, images, mythologemas and binary oppositions). The monograph is aimed at the readers interested in the literature and culture of the nationalities of the North, philologists, students.
