Whoever does not know the new Russian literature does not know the new Russia, because only literature, at least partially or conventionally, could make them understand the grandiose process, closer to geology than to politics, which takes place in a people of one hundred. fifty million souls.

They are the emigrants from the interior, since they were born and came to literature through the revolution and not the other way around. It is the period between 1921 and 1923 that originates a whole young literature rich in talent and very soon rich in works, confusingly revolutionary and otherwise not socialist: it is the generation of Pilniak, Fedin, Gladkov, Sifulina, Ehrenburg, Babel, Mayakovsky, Chaguinian, Ivanov, Leonov, Kollontai (managed to lay the foundations for real equality between men and women, liberalizing family relationships and sexual relations, approved divorce and the right to abortion; she became the first female ambassador in history , and that she was finally saved from being executed)… that still set the tone for the literature of Soviet Russia, that of the Revolution's traveling companions, the poputschiki who constitute the most successful group in the West and whose literary work deals with to withdraw from the propaganda and pedagogical course imposed by the party, the group of the Serapión brothers, the constructivists and the various avant-garde schools, claiming a literature make it accessible to the masses, both in substance and in form. They are not part of the career writers who gradually begin to describe the revolution. They are not converts either. This Soviet literary group, made up of a series of young writers - almost all prose writers between the ages of twenty and thirty - proclaimed in a manifesto the freedom of the creator from aesthetic pressures or political interference and uniformity of expression and advocated the need to care to the last detail the techniques and narrative forms. Admirers of Western European literature, they saw in it the ideal guideline to develop the Russian short story and drama of the first half of the 20th century.
