"Под властью угля", или история о том, как британский углекоп Гарольд Хезлоп так и не стал советским писателем

Slovĕne. 2017. Т. 6. № 2. С. 482-504.

The paper explores the work of the British working class author Harold Heslop, whose sponsor was the Soviet diplomat Ivan Maisky, as part of the Soviet cultural diplomacy. Its focus is the Soviet publications of the writer, 1926-1931, and their Soviet criticism. Discussing the British author as a Soviet cultural project demonstrates the shift of cultural paradigms in the Soviet cultural policy, from the internationalist projects of the 1920s to the messianic ‘cosmopolitan’ (Clark) projects of the 1930s.
