ABSTRACT
A conclusion to the book, Contextualizing Transition: Interviews with Contemporary Russian Writers & Critics, is presented. It discusses the assessment of Russian literature by critics in the 1990s. Mikhail Berg examines the consequences of the disappearance of the poetic function of Russian literature in current discourse. Oleg Dark presents a quite different analysis of Russian cultural dynamics. Dark emphasizes the discourse that allows for hedonistic pleasure yet at the same time remains neutral if not completely apolitical regarding social transformation. Meanwhile, the analyzes of cultural dynamics by Viacheslav Kuritsyn presents a significant departure from traditional philological investigation.
