The Russian Literature

Mythopoetic textual analysis as a likely way to the adecuate meaning of literature appears in Slavic philology in the 70-s on the byroads of some paradigms of liberal arts. Sharing the basic functions of poststructuralism, Mythopoetical objection mosts likely to use almost some methodological positionings of contemporary grammars, semiotics as well as the research study of society.

This approach to massage assists to describe the level of deep semantics which continues to be inaccessible for common literary history. Nonetheless, some qualities of this method appear to be weird and doubtful, because it mainly chooses the cutting-edge way of analysis. That’s why Mythopoetical objection became worthwhile for numerous scholars of Russian literature in their intents to leave the out-of-date systems of analysis. The renowned reps of Mythopoetics are both in the Western scholarship (as an example, Erzy Faryno, Wolf Schmid, Aage Hansen-Love, Igor Smirnov, Mikhail Weiskopf) and in the Russian (such as Vladimir Toporov as a precursor of the activity and numerous scholars of youngest generation – Goncharov family, Tupa & so on). In my point of view, it’s necessary to realize the whole circle of Mythopoetical questions in historical, typological as well as the useful element. It is a general purpose of the 1’st component.

Although this fad of criticism is productive of various functional analyses of particular texts, there is no any tip on a stringent academic perception, which might develop the basis of all. In this sense, there will indeed work to take a look at the history of technique’s advancement, since it was exceptionally selective from the very beginning. The first part of my job is dedicated to the historical study of methodology as well as its advancement.

The 2nd component presents an attempt of useful adaptation of general building and constructions to the concrete material. For this treatment, I’ve picked the stuff of Soviet Literature in the twenties and also early thirties. Uniformity of my choice is accounted for exceptional sort of consciousnesses in the early Soviet society which revived some archaical designs in modern-day context extremely proactively. As it is understood, the poetry of this period is the much more unusual object of literary research studies versus the supposed Socialist Realistic look of the 30 – 40-s. In the 2nd component of argumentation, I decide to check out a least expensive, or, talking even more specifically, the fundamental mythopoetical degree of the messages consisting of key-motives and also universal frameworks of story.

Allow me to specify my items of analysis. There are the proletarian verse of the 20-s and also fragmentary of the 30-s; the lengthy poem “The Land of Moravia” by Alexander Tvardovsky; short stories by Andrei Platonov and the novel-in-verse “PUSHTORG” by Ilya Selvinsky. I attempted to organize this material typologically to envelop all standard rounds where mythopoetical elements are the feature. The detach of my research is to highlight the first mythopoetical removes in Soviet Literature of the mentioned duration, to find semantic universals similar to old models.

Better, I wish to define some derivates of the most common situation in traditional culture – I indicate the ritual of flow from one globe to an additional presented in the many encoding frameworks. In existing work, there are three versions of this plot – mainly vegetative, animalistic, commercial. This mythological situation sets out as a substitute of Revolution, the central occasion of the epoch and its turning point. Early Soviet poets approve and define Transformation as a temporary devastation of the old world and prompt development of the new. That’s why the designs of mythological consciousness, especially, cosmogonical stories, end up being actual when writing.
