n Slavic Almanac : The South African Journal for Slavic, Central and Eastern European Studies - Again, 'because of Gogol'

Volume 15, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 1025-3386


The article considers the Russian poet-futurist Aleksei Kruchenykh's attraction to Gogol's works. Kruchenykh retells, in his own way, the celebrated writer's plots, showing that classical works are alive in modern times. The avant-garde poet presents the 19th-century writer as a kind of futurist. Kruchenykh's texts are indicative of the Russian futurists' attitude, in general, to Gogol - they considered him to be one of them, and so they treated him with perfect ease and freedom.
