The collection of the most significant scientific papers by Alexander Yu.

The section “From the History of Literary Life” contains articles and notes from periodicals that have become inaccessible (the old “Literaturnoe Obozrenie”, the Parisian newspaper “Russkaia Mysl”). The section “From the Documentary Biography of E.I. Zamyatin” presents materials for the book of the same name prepared by A.Yu. Galushkin on the basis of his works on Zamyatin; as an appendix, his PhD thesis “Discussion on B. Pilnyak and E. Zamyatin in the Context of Literary Policy of the Late 1920s — Early 1930s” with author’s corrections and additions is published for the first time. The collection is concluded with the bibliography of A.Yu. Galushkin’s works.
