The "New Russian Literature" and Soviet Literature in the 1990s.
It is widely believed that poetry in the Soviet Union has lost its place to newspapers and periodicals that have robbed literature of its readers. Prior to glasnost, non-official literature in the Soviet Union was more than a literary event; it was often the only mode of political discourse available to the literate public. This paper suggests that the result is "new literature" and a two-tiered system of commercially viable versus externally subsidized publications primarily for select audiences. The development of a new Soviet literary journal and a new critical vocabulary are discussed. The Committee of Writers in Support of Perestroika and other groups are discussed. The appendices and bibliography are in Russian. Contains 16 references. (LB)
