Postmodern Crises collects previously published and yet unpublished Mark Lipovetsky's articles on Russian literature and film.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.

""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.

This volume focuses on several Russian authors among many who immigrated to Israel with the "big wave" of the 1990s or later, and whose largest part of their works was written in Israel: Dina Rubina, Nekod Singer, Elizaveta Mikhailichenko and Yury Nesis, and Mikhail Yudson. They are popular and active authors on the Israeli scene, in the printed and electronic media, and some of them are also editors of the renowned journals and authors of literary and cultural reviews and essays. They constitute a new generation of Jewish-Russian writers: diasporic Russians and new Israelis.

Recent decades have been decisive for Russia not only politically but culturally as well. The end of the Cold War has enabled Russia to take part in the global rise and crystallization of postmodernism. This volume investigates the manifestations of this crucial trend in Russian fiction, poetry, art, and spirituality, demonstrating how Russian postmodernism is its own unique entity. It offers a point of departure and valuable guide to an area of contemporary literary-cultural studies insufficiently represented in English-language scholarship. This second edition includes additional essays on the topic and a new introduction examining more contemporary developments.
