Postmodern Crises collects previously published and yet unpublished Mark Lipovetsky's articles on Russian literature and film. Written in different years, they focus on cultural and aesthetic crises that, taken together, constitute the postmodern condition of Russian culture. The reader will find here articles about classical subversive texts (such as Nabokov's Lolita), performances (Pussy Riot), and recent, but also subversive, films. Other articles discuss such authors as Vladimir Sorokin, such sociocultural discourses as the discourse of scientific intelligentsia; post-Soviet adaptations of Socialist Realism, and contemporary trends of "complex" literature, as well as literary characters turned into cultural tropes (the Strugatsky's progressors). The book will be interesting for teachers and scholars of contemporary Russian literature and culture; it can be used both in undergraduate and graduate courses.

The draft dodger Laurence yearns to take control of his destiny. Having fled to the highlands, he asserts his independence by committing a string of robberies and murders. Then he happens upon Ivlita, a beautiful young woman trapped in an intricately carved mahogany house. Laurence does not hesitate to take her as well. Determined to drape his young bride in jewels, he plots ever more daring heists. Yet when Laurence finds himself casting bombs alongside members of a revolutionary cell, he must again ask: is he a free man or a pawn of history? Rapture is a fast-paced adventure-romance and a literary treat of the highest order. With a deceptively light hand, Iliazd entertains questions that James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, and Thomas Mann once faced. How does the individual balance freedom and necessity, love and death, creativity and sterility? What is the role of violence in human history and culture? How does language both comfort and fail us in our postwar, post-Christian world? Censored for decades in the Soviet Union, Rapture was nearly lost to Russian and Western audiences. This translation rescues Laurence's surreal journey from the oblivion he, too, faces as he tries to outrun fate.

The touch and movement senses have a large place in the modern arts. This is widely discussed and celebrated, often enough as if it represents a breakthrough in a primarily visual age. This book turns to history to show just how significant movement and the sense of movement were to pioneers of modernism at the turn of the 20th century. It makes this history vivid through a picture of movement in the lives of an extraordinary generation of Russian artists, writers, theatre people and dancers bridging the last years of the tsars and the Revolution. Readers will gain a new perspective on the relation between art and life in the period 1890-1920 in great innovators like the poets Mayakovsky and Andrei Bely, the theatre director Meyerhold, the dancer Isadora Duncan and the young men and women in Russia inspired by her lead, and esoteric figures like Gurdjieff. Movement, and the turn to the body as a source of natural knowledge, was at the centre of idealistic creativity and hopes for a new age, for a 'new man', and this was true both for those who looked forward to the technology of the future and those who looked back to the harmony of Ancient Greece. The book weaves history and analysis into a colourful, thoughtful affirmation of movement in the expressive life.

  • Conclusion.
Exploring theater practices in communist and post-communist Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria, this book analyzes intertextuality or "inter-theatricality" as a political strategy, designed to criticize contemporary political conditions while at the same time trying to circumvent censorship. In the Soviet bloc the theater of the absurd, experimentation, irony, and intertextual distancing (estrangement) were much more than mere aesthetic language games, but were planned political strategies that used indirection to say what could not be said directly. Plays by Romanian, Hungarian and Bulgarian dramatists are examined, who are "retrofitting" the past by adapting the political crimes and horrifying tactics of totalitarianism to the classical theatre (with Shakespeare a favorite) to reveal the region's traumatic history. By the sustained analysis of the aesthetic devices used as political tools, Orlich makes a very strong case for the continued relevance of the theater as one of the subtlest media in the public sphere. She embeds her close readings in a thorough historical analysis and displays a profound knowledge of the political role of theater history.

""Peindre. Un homme a passé sa vie à peindre. Et quand je dis sa vie entendez bien. Le reste est gesticulation. Peindre est sa vie. Que peint-il ? Des fruits, des fleurs, l'entrée d'un roi dans une ville ? Tout ce qui s'explique est autre chose que la vie. Que sa vie. Sa vie est peindre. Inexplicablement." écrit le poète Louis Aragon. Lorsque Marc Chagall disparaît le 28 Mars -1985, la reconnaissance de son oeuvre est universelle. Peu de personnes cependant ont en mémoire les liens indéfectibles qu'il a toujours entretenus avec la poésie, en écrivant lui-même, gravant ou peignant au contact des écrivains et poètes de son temps. Sur les chemins de la poésie et dans ce "grand jeu de la couleur" dont a parlé son ami André Malraux, il aura forgé une oeuvre atypique, intense et généreuse. L'exposition, présentée au Fonds Hélène & Édouard Leclerc pour la Culture, réunit des oeuvres majeures provenant de musées internationaux et de collections privées. Ces oeuvres illustrent le thème de la Bible et les événements qui ont marqué la vie de Chagall: la révolution, la guerre, l'exil... ainsi que des textes essentiels du passé qui lui ont servi d'appui pour de grands livres illustrés: Jean de La Fontaine, Gogol... Des écrivains ou poètes dont Chagall fut l'ami proche, Guillaume Apollinaire, André Malraux, Louis Aragon... disent également d'autres rencontres d'exception qu'il fit en son temps."--Page 4 of cover.
