As Comrade Stalin Started to Govern the Literary Front

Yurganov A.L.

Abstract

The article tells about I.V. Stalin’s politics in literature and the gradual adoption of his cult in this area. One of the main methods of that policy was the use of the ideas of Marxist dialectics in literary discourse. The Stalinist dialectics served as the pressure on writers, who lost orientation in the «correct» description of reality.
