Lithuanian Literature and the Project of Soviet Multinational Literature
"I will present the context of Soviet literature and doctrine of Socialist realism which Lithuanian literature, as well as literatures of other Baltic states, were expected to join in 1940. I am going to discuss the means Soviet authorities employed to create national versions of Socialist realism, such as using the avanguard and neoromantic tradition, prominent figures of interwar literary life etc. I am also going to talk over the ardent contemporary discussions about the political role of some prominent Soviet writers of the Stalinist period."
2. Teisipäev, 22. oktoober kell 18.15 (Lossi 3-417)
Modernization of Literature in Soviet Lithuania
"I am going to talk about two types of modernization in Lithuanian literature of the post Stalinist period. The first one could be entitled as formalist: it found a room in the new conception of Socialist realism as progressive method, open to formal renewial, altgough preserved the Communist world view (the winers of Lenin’s prize being a part of this group). The second one could be interpreted as (non)soviet: it questioned the official Soviet aesthetic doctrine, deconstructed Soviet ideology while develeoping modern literary forms as the screen to censorship (so called Aesoping language being one of the effects of this type of literature)."
3. Neljapäev, 24. oktoober kell 18.15 (Lossi 3-417)
Problem of the National Bard. The Case of Justinas Marcinkevičius
"I am going to talk about the current discussions concerning Justinas Marcinkevičius (1930-2011), the most famous Lithuanian writer of the Soviet epoch. He is considered to be the national bard, who inspired feeling of national pride as the opposition to Soviet ideology, but he is also accused to be an indirect collaborator with the Soviet system as he never passed the limits of nationalism tolerated by Soviet authorities and even incorporated into official doctrine of art (“socialist content, national form”). Discussions about Marcinkevičius’ role provoked several scandals in Lithuanian society, and some of them I am going to present.
Several works by Justinas Marcinkevičius have been published in Estonian:
- "Carmina minora" (Tuum 2003)
- "Mažvydas", värssdraama (Eesti Raamat 1991)
- "Mindaugas", värssdraama (Eesti Raamat 1988)
- "Katedraal", värssdraama (Eesti Raamat 1980)
- "Mänd, mis naeris" (Loomingu Raamatukogu 1963)"
