Book Chapter
This chapter of the book Contextualizing Transition: Interviews with Contemporary Russian Writers & Critics presents an interview with Russian author Valeriia Narbikova about her works. According to Narbikova, the nature of her texts can be explained by the fact that she considers words to have their own values and their own physical and material properties. Narbikova said that the more she lives the less she understands what literature is all about. Her attitude towards language is deeply philosophical. She emphasizes textual discourse that extends beyond the boundaries of everyday speech.
