L. L. Lyubimov Notes on myth creation around great Russian literature According to the author, the classical Russian literature remains completely unread by a majority of population in this country. The reason for that is that it is well «hidden» behind revolutionary mantras and оценками. The author explores the revolutionary liberal literary criticism as a phenomenon that initiated the myth creation around the Russian literature: the religious content of many a masterpiece of the Russian literature was ostracized, the notion of a «small person» was perverted, and general humanistic values were replaced by revolutionary slogans. Particular attention is given to an analysis of the world outlook and personality of V. G. Belinsky.
