Graham Roberts: The Last Soviet Avant-Garde: OBERIU – Fact, Fiction, Metafiction (1997)

16 July 2013, dusan

“This is the first comprehensive study of the group of avant-garde Soviet writers who styled themselves OBERIU, “The Association for Real Art”. Graham Roberts reexamines commonly-held assumptions about OBERIU, its identity as a group, its aesthetics, its relationship to the formalists and the Bakhtin circle, and its place within Russian and European literary traditions. Roberts concludes by showing how the self-conscious literature of OBERIU–its metafiction–occupies an important transitional space between modernism and postmodernism.

– A comprehensive study of important Soviet avant-garde group
– Sets the work of OBERIU in aesthetic and theoretical context of formalism and the Bakhtin circle
– Provides insights into the relationship between modernism and postmodernism”
