(in Russian language)

Despite its brevity, the era of the Khrushchev thaw has become a significant milestone in the history of Soviet literature. The weakening of the political pressure on intellectuals led to a cultural enlivenment yielding rich fruits in literature. Yet commonly, when referring to the “sixtiers”, literary scientists mean primarily Moscow-based writers and poets, their colleagues from Leningrad falling thus in a sort of a “research vacuum”. Maria Andrianova fills this gap by tracing the lively and intense dialogue of the Leningrad sixtiers with their contemporaries.

Dr. Maria Andrianova is a project assistant at the Institute of Russian Literature of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Russian literature of the second half of the 20th century belongs to the scope of her main research interests.
