(in Russian language)

Serbian literature of the second half of the 20th century offers a paramount example of a coherent postmodernism manifesting itself in a most consistent way. One of the main characteristics of the Serbian postmodernism noticeable at all stages of its development is the influence of theoretical thoughts of the Russian formalist school. In her lecture Alla Tatarenko reveals why this influence was so outstanding and determines the most common specifics of it by referring to the works of such prominent Serbian postmodernists as Danilo Kiš and Milorad Pavić.

Alla Tatarenko is head of the Department of Slavic philology of the Ivan Franko National University of Lviv. She is a distinguished expert and translator of postmodern Serbian literature.
