The Contemporary Russian Cosmopolitans
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of Slavic and Baltic Studies, Finnish, Dutch, and German.
2018 (English)In: World Literatures: Exploring the Cosmopolitan-Vernacular Exchange / [ed] Stefan Helgesson, Annika Mörte-Alling, Yvonne Lindqvist, Helena Wulff, Stockholm: Stockholm University Press, 2018, p. 211-228Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The article examines Russian transcultural writing through an analysis of selected works by Vladimir Nabokov, Joseph Brodsky, Mikhail Shishkin and Andrei Makine. It is argued that contemporary Russian cosmopolitanism should be related to the East/West dichotomy, as defining Russian cultural history. Arguably, the cultural choices made by writers in exile until today have been influenced by their gravitation to one of these poles. The article discusses the poetics of transcultural writing and deals with questions such as its genres of preference, the organization of time and space, and translingualism.
