Biblejskie i liturgicheskie podtekstry v 'Kotlovane' kak motivirovka povedeniia geroev i tona rasskazchika

Olga Meerson. "Biblejskie i liturgicheskie podtekstry v ’Kotlovane’ kak motivirovka povedeniia geroev i tona rasskazchika." Diesseits und jenseits der Utopien. Andrej Platonov - ein Autor zwischen allen Stühlen. Konferenz (9.10.-11.10.2008) . Ed. HANSEN-LÖVE, Aage (Hrsg.). München - Berlin: Verlag Otto Sagner / Wiener Slawistischer Almanach, Band 63, 2009: 71-83

The title, in English, is, roughly, "Biblical and Liturgical Subtexts in Platonov's The Foundation Pit as the Motivation for the Characters' Behavior and the Narrator's Tone". For a stylization, and even a parody, of a typical soviet Production Novel, Platonov's anti-utopian novel The Foundation Pit uses or invokes an inordinate number of Biblical and Liturgical subtexts. The article explores their role as a contrastive element, in de-crowning the atheistic utopia which the author of the novel seems to narrate in otherwise purely soviet terms and linguistic cliche's.
