Travelogue as Device: 1917 Revolution in the Mirror of the Russian Emigrant Prose of the 1920s

Student: Marsel Khamitov

Supervisor: Mikhail Sverdlov

Faculty: Faculty of Humanities

Educational Programme: Russian and Comparative Literature (Master)

Year of Graduation: 2020

My master’s thesis is focused on the key fictional travelogues of Russian emigrants of the 1920s: “The Sentimental Journey” and “Zoo, or Letters not about Love” by Viktor Shklovsky, “The Extraordinary Adventures of Julio Jurenito and his Disciples” by Ilya Ehrenburg and “The Adventures of Nevzorov, or Ibicus” by Alexey Tolstoy. Through the juxtaposition of these texts with the descriptions of real trips made by foreigners to Russia in revolution I consider the position of “vnehahodimost’”(“being outside”) which is crucial for the emigrants’ perspective on the Russian revolution.
