Abstract

A Odessa fu Jacob Adler, giovane campione di boxe e di ballo, a dare vita al primo teatro yiddish russo. Negli Stati Uniti Boris Thomashefsky, giovanissimo immigrato senza alcuna formazione specifica, fondò la prima compagnia yiddish professionale. Adler diventò un attore-mito con il soprannome di Grande Aquila, Thomashefsky fu il re dello shund, l’amato e disprezzato teatro- spazzatura. Per oltre un ventennio l’amicizia e la concorrenza tra i due diedero l’impulso più rilevante a un genere spettacolare al tempo stesso popolare e innovatore, capace di proporre in scena episodi biblici e scabrosi fatti di cronaca, controversie filosofiche e battaglie politiche. Le donne che i due incontrarono e che li affiancarono come attrici e compagne di vita furono altrettanto fondamentali nel determinare la fisionomia del teatro yiddish nella transizione dalla vecchia Europa a quella Amerike nella quale le più diverse etnie e culture cercavano di costruirsi un futuro di benessere e felicità. Sempre mescolando divertimento e commozione, risate e lacrime, il teatro yiddish realizzato durante pochi decenni tra il xix e il xx secolo da alcune centinaia di artisti straordinari non fu soltanto il principale elemento identitario di una comunità ma anche un incredibile laboratorio senza il quale il teatro contemporaneo sarebbe molto più povero.

Abstract

Vite parallele, quelle dei due grandi attori Solomon Michoels e Veniamin Zuskin, immerse nella speranza suscitata da un regime che per la prima volta nella storia riconosceva parità di diritti agli ebrei. Lo stato sovietico attribuiva al lavoro culturale e artistico un ruolo fondamentale e gli ebrei progressisti contavano su questo presupposto anche per emanciparsi dal conservatorismo che caratterizzava gran parte della loro tradizione. Per quei giovani, moderni e formati in ambienti fortemente permeati dallo “spirito della musica”, l’arte e il teatro si incontravano con le istanze della Rivoluzione d’Ottobre. Purtroppo l’utopia defluì nel giro di pochi anni in una violenta reazione opposta, destinata a seppellire sotto la pesante cappa del realismo socialista il critico, gioioso e trascendente grottesco del teatro yiddish, nonché provocando uno scontro che volse in tragedia e si concluse con la morte, l’esilio e il silenzio di quasi tutti gli interpreti russi della cultura yiddish. I due protagonisti di questo libro avevano scelto il teatro come ricerca della verità e ne subirono le amare conseguenze.

Abstract

This book offers a portrait of Leningrad in the 1960s, of its cultural life in those years permeated by a great hope for change. Leningrad, now St. Petersburg, is the heir and witness of the rise and fall of the 'Soviet hope' for an authentic change, its evolution and its inevitable decline. Through an analysis of the poems of Iosif Brodskij, Stefania Pavan maps out the process that led the intelligencija of Leningrad to disclose their claims, to give shape to the intellectual conscience of the city, and that subsequently constrained them to adopt the opposite approach, concealing – in a semi-visible space and in the myriad modes of the 'samizdat' – the values, names and images of the hope of change. Through an analysis of the linguistic peculiarities of The dregs , one of the 'classic' short stories of Boris Ivanov, Simonetta Signorini proposes a micro-history of the Russian language in the 60s, to which the study carried out by Ljudmila Zubova on the poems of Viktor Sosnora makes a useful contribution. The essay by Irina Dvizova highlights an aspect of the culture of Leningrad that can be considered extremely topical, in terms both of argument and as a method of reading literary history: the relation between the city and the Dostoevskij museum.

Abstract

This book focuses upon an aspect which has been little investigated to date in the poetics of Iosif Brodskij: the rich intertextual network that links his verses to classical literature. Brodskij's intertext never appears as imitation but rather as mimesis, like an inescapable mediation - at times concealed by the presence of cultures diachronically closer, the Russian in the first place - strongly impregnated with meaning and teaching: "(As for creation, the pen has created very little). / But how much light it casts in the night, / the ink, merging with the darkness!". This book proposes moments of reflection on the intense and nuanced relation that connects Brodskij's poetics with the poetics of Aristotle, and the subtle but equally strong links of Brodskij's idea of democracy with that of the organisation of government in Plato's Republic. Pursuing an historic approach, the book delineates the characteristics of Brodskij as a reader of the classics and, at the same time, as a person intimately involved, at an individual and collective level, in the events of Russian culture. In Brodskij's dialogical approach, in particular in relation to ancient classical culture, the lineaments of the poet emerge clearly. Considered in their globality, these reveal inspiration, thought (profound, and strongly impregnated with philosophy), moral rigour (ironic and self-ironising), the renunciation of the display of feelings, and the tension towards an autobiographical writing that is universalised and externalised, a strong and constant link with the narration of myths and, in a manner that is increasingly marked over the time of his life and work, a progressive prevalence of the signs of the classical authors.

Abstract

The dramatic involvement of the Tsarist Empire in the First World War marks a turning point in the history of Russia and its surrounding areas. The dynamics triggered by the challenge of total mobilization gave rise to political, social, economic and cultural transformations destined to have a profound and prolonged impact on Europe and the whole world during the 20-th century. The studies and the researches collected in this volume explore key themes of the crisis that hit the imperial space: the patriotic culture and the representation of the enemy in war propaganda; the interweaving of war effort and national issues in the imperial peripheries; the intensified competition between the multiethnic empires in the context of total war; the breakthrough achieved by nationalisms during the 1917 revolutions. Special attention is also devoted to the analysis of the international historiographical trends that have emerged in the last quarter of a century and which have redefined the interpretation of the period 1914-1921 / 22.
