In ‘the Paradise of Friends’: Boris Poplavskii’s Novel, Homeward from Heaven, in the Light of Alexandre Kojève’s Seminar on Hegel

Slavonic and East European Review. 2018. Vol. 96. No. 2. P. 181-207.

The article focuses on the legacy of Alexandre Kojève's interpretation of the Phenomenology of the Spirit by Hegel in the novel Homeward from Heaven by Boris Poplavskii, Russian émigré poet and writer who attended Kojève's seminar at the École pratique des hautes études in 1934–35 while writing his final narrative. This enables us to reconfigure the well-known notion of the ‘unnoticed generation’, which claims the cultural isolation of young émigrés in interwar Paris.
