During the early years of the nineteenth century, when an appropriate prose idiom was gradually being forged in Russia, major and minor writers...
Vassily Aksenov is generally recognized as one of the most prominent and important writers of the post-Stalinist period in Russian literature. He started the revival of experimentation in artistic technique after thirty years of the mandatory, but barren, style of Socialist Realism. He is perhaps the most significant heir of the Gogolian tradition in contemporary Russian literature. His phantasmagoric fiction...
