Завещание Софи. От Ганновера до Сибири. Трагическая история Софи Лисицкой-Кюпперс и ее похищенных картин
The article discusses the narrative strategies in Benedikt Livshits’s One and a Half- Eyed Archer, in which one can distinguish, conditionally speaking, a “Gogolian” and a “Tolstoyan” principle. This determines the portraiture, in a more or less positive or negative light, of various major Futurists, such as David Burliuk, Aleksei Kruchenykh, Velimir Khlebnikov, Vladimir Maiakovskii, and other figures, such as Elena Guro, Igor’ Severianin and Nikolai Kul’bin.
The problems of the man are examined in the context of the state development, human inner world, and perception of historical events. The researcher has used their private sources such as diaries, memoirs and letters which reflect the levels of spiritual life and psychology of people living in individual historic ages.
Memoirs from meetings with Bernhard Töpfer and Peter Moraw.
