Title Мандельштам и сталинская эпоха: эзопов язык в поэзии Мандельштама 30-х годов
Description This book is based on close readings of Mandel’shtam’s late poetry. It shows how Mandel’shtam’s usage of literary and cultural subtexts served in the 1930’s not only for esthetic but also for political encoding. The work gives a new perspective on Mandel’shtam’s late oeuvre, showing that his path from the epigram against Stalin to the so-called “ode” was not a shift to conformity but a logical literary maneuver, changing his open literary protest to a well-hidden challenge to Stalin’s bloody reign.
