Поэтика документальности Шаламов – Пушкин - Терц. Радка Рубилина (Бзонкова)

28/02/2017 12:36
Насколько можно (или нужно) говорить в случае лагерной литературы о документальности? Многие лагерные авторы воспринимают себя как «свидетелей эпохи»: пишут мемуары, рассказы, романы. Несмотря на их заверения, до сих пор продолжаются дискуссии о том, насколько они в своих произведениях...

“You are being a part of history”, John, the initiator of the entire project, started his speech. “Whose history?” Immediately I wanted to contradict certain pathos in his voice. But, I bit my tongue. After all, this is a very first day of our mission in Ukrainian…   Before the local security...

A friend have promised us a premiere of a new play by a ‘prohibited’ (underground) theatre performed in some family house somewhere on the periphery. By the time we took a bus and got to the assigned meeting spot, we were already late for more than a half an hour. The friend was gone. Though he...

In Moldova, in Kishinev/Chisinau, I was waiting for a microbus (also known as marshrutka) that would take me to the opposite side of the city. In Kishinev, public transportation does not exist; it came to the end together with the Soviet Union. Like anywhere in the East, the heavily producing...

Radka Rubilina: New Year’s Troubles, Armenia 2013/14

30/03/2014 21:26
Oh, this inattentiveness of mine! With my head always somewhere in high transcendent spheres, no wonder things were happening the way they were. I get groceries, go back home, take a look at my bag, and…all apples I fully and dully paid for are missing.  I am thinking, “Are the local salesmen...

Radka Rubilina: The State Border, Ukraine 2007

19/03/2014 16:42
