Abstract: the article addresses the interrelations between Wyndham Lewis’s notion of the visual in literature and the poetics of his novel, “Tarr” (1918). Commonly accepted definition of visuality in Lewis’s literary texts as analogy between their certain poetic characteristics and the features of modern painting is supplemented by an analysis of the author’s philosophical criticism of the 1920–1930s concerning “philosophy of the eye” and “external method” in literature. Considering surface poetics in “Tarr” and its main artist-character’s representation in the view of visual philosophy allows to define the relationship between the novel as a unity and Lewis’s artistic theory as deeply problematic and one far from being an illustration.
The article analyzes legal approaches to the concept of traditional values in Russia. Using policy papers, laws and sub-normative documents, the article focuses on how traditional values are constructed by legal instruments. It is argued that the introduction of traditional values as a concept signifies a search for identity strategies in various spheres, making private life and the family a testing ground for experiments in changing the contemporary value system of Russians. The article concludes that the rather blunt imposition of traditional values has failed due to divisions within the political elite and the overall strength of more modern attitudes to the family and social policy among the Russian population. The article argues that current policies follow the paths of traditional modernism comparable with early modern projects to construct a nation state based on resource economy.
In the article russian acmeism is considered in he context of the criticism of the 1910s
The article analyzes how modernism is represented in two Wyndham Lewis’s autobiographies, «Blasting and Bombardiering» (1937) and «Rude Assignment» (1950). The author’s reflection on modernism is considered within the context of his critical attitude towards the autobiographical in modernist novel and taking into account the changes in his autobiographical intentions from one book to the other. The article concludes that in Lewis’s far from experimental use of autobiography the latter acts as a means of definition, popularization and justification of his conception of modernism considered to be, just as his autobiographies, an act of detachment rather than exploration of subjectivity.
