Советская реальность в повести Ю.В. Трифонова "Дом на набережной"
Although the story “The House on the Embankment” was written only 42 years ago, it contains fundamental concepts and aspects of everyday life of the USSR, which are nowadays unclear for many modern readers. Those are mostly related to byt and experience of soviet life, but besides that, there is also a high level of historical background, which can be not evident and in consequence misunderstood while reading. Despite the fact that there are many conceptual and hermeneutic comments of “The House on the Embankment” and other Trifonov’s texts, still there is no annotated edition with complete textual commentary. This study attempts to clarify obscured moments and explain twentieth-century markers of reality in order to enrich contemporary reader's understanding of Trifonov's prose.
