9780810116917: The Art of Writing Badly: Valentin Kataev's Mauvism and the Rebirth of Russian Modernism (Studies in Russian Literature and Theory)

"The art of writing badly" is a phrase the Russian writer Valentin Kataev coined to describe the work that came out of the mauvist movement in Russia-a style of writing that consciously challenged Soviet dogma. In this book, Richard Borden discusses the cultural and political context from which these authors emerged and the development of "bad writing."

Beginning with a close examination of the work of Kataev, the best-known progenitor of "bad writing," Borden then broadens his study to include the "mauvist creations" of post-Stalinist writers Aksenov, Bitov, Sokolov, Limonov, Evgeny Popov, and Venedikt Erofeev. Borden shows how these writers' shared mauvistic characteristics reveal major philosophical and aesthetic tendencies in contemporary Russian culture, bring to light facets of their writing that have never been discussed, and enrich the readings of the particular texts under discussion.

Book Description Northwestern University Press, United States, 1999. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The art of writing badly is a phrase the Russian writer Valentin Kataev coined to describe the work that came out of the mauvist movement in Russian literature - a style of writing that consciously challenged Soviet dogma. This disobedient writing is typically characterized by an exaggerated focus on the self and by a contradiction of the collective idea. In this book, Richard Borden discusses the cultural and political context from which these authors emerged and the development of bad writing. Examining the works of well-reknown post-Stalinist writers such as Kataev, Evgeny Popov and Adrei Bitov, this text brings to light facets of their writing that have never been discussed, thus enriching the readings of the particular texts under discussion.
