(p.75) Chapter 3 The Dangerous Narrative of the Russian Village
Russia's Dangerous Texts

Kathleen Parthé

Yale University Press

This chapter examines the history of the Village Prose, a postwar literary movement in Russian that lasted from 1956 to 1980. It analyzes what was so provocative about the Village Prose and what it threatened in Soviet and post-Soviet society. The chapter considers the five distinct approaches to the interpretation of the codes of the Village Prose, and suggests that the frequently changing and sharply differing interpretations of post-Stalinist rural literature show how texts can lose their specificity as they become pre-texts for debate.

Keywords:   Village Prose, literary movement, Russia, rural literature, pre-texts for debate
