Первая попытка создания британской секции МОРПа в контексте истории МОРПа и журнала «Интернациональная литература»

Unlike bigger sections of the International Union of Revolutionary Writers (IURW), such as the German, American or French ones, the British section was created in two stages, first in 1930-2 and then in 1935. Whereas the second attempt was quite successful and the British section of the IURW of 1934 can be studied through a variety of bureaucratic documents, the first left hardly any typically bureaucratic paperwork, but correspondence between the British and Soviet representatives of the union. The letters come together as an adventure story that is of interest within the institutional history of the IURW as well as a wider context of the Soviet cultural diplomacy.
