Поэтика русской драматургии рубежа XX-XXI веков
This paper is a quantitative research on the evolution of dramatic texts since the 1740s to the first quarter of the 20th century. Using our TEI-encoded corpus of plays, we analyze the changes in length and linguistic composition of stage directions. These changes, in our view, reflect the general ‘epification’ of drama – a process that later culminates with the emergence of Brecht’s ‘epic theatre’.
For many years the playwright Nikolai Erdman and his remarkable impact on Russian theater and drama have been almost forgotten. In the 1990s, however, his drama began attracting critics' attention. Now, as a result, Erdman is viewed as one of the prominent Russian playwrights of the first half of the twentieth century. Although recently Erdman became an important object of research, the innovations of his drama have never been analyzed as specific phenomena. This article is focused on poetics of two main Erdman's plays: “The Warrant” and “The Suicide.” By analyzing the time and space, as well as the plot, dialogue, and characters, the main innovatory elements of these plays are analyzed. According to this analysis, Erdman's dialogue appears to be the playwright's most significant discovery which impacted not only his own drama but the whole Russian theater of the twentieth century as well.
