    Who Needs Whom? The Relationship between Children and Adults in Vladislav Krapivin’s Complicated Worlds The article discusses how the structure of the worlds in Vladislav Krapivin’s children’s fantasy novels written in the 1980s and early 1990s is connected to the central theme of the works, the complicated relationship between children and adults. The novel Deti sinego amingo (1981) is based on a two-world structure that supports a description of a binary relationship: children are seen as essentially good and adults as their oppressors. Krapivin’s pentalogy V glubine Velikogo Kristalla (1988–91) is situated in a complex multiverse described as a crystal: every facet of the crystal is a complete world of its own. Likewise, the relationships between adult and child characters in the series are complicated. Children are often seen from the viewpoint of adult characters, and children and adults are presented as mutually dependent on each other. The article also investigates the audience of Krapivin’s novels. Despite their status as children’s literature, the texts address a dual audience consisting of both children and adults. The texts are seen in the context of Soviet perestroika literature. In the spirit of perestroika, also children’s authors were able to write about topics that were not accepted before and thus it was possible for Krapivin to discuss the problematic relations between children and adults

    The Spaces of Cultural Memory in Liudmila Ulitskaia’s Zelionyi shatior and Elena Chizhova’s Vremia zhenshchin The article explores the relation between cultural memory and spatiality in two contemporary Russian novels, Vremia zhenshchin (2009, The Time of Women) by Elena Chizhova and Zelionyi shatior (2010, The Big Green Tent) by Liudmila Ulitskaia. Both deal with alternative narratives of Russian culture under the pressure of Soviet rule from the 1950s onwards. The alternative urban space is constructed in individual and communal activity. Chizhova’s text can be read in the St. Petersburg literary tradition and Ulitskaia’s novel builds on the literary culture of Moscow. In The Time of Women, the alternative culture based on Russian orthodox religion and folk tradition is preserved by three old women mediating it to a little mute girl who grows up to be an artist. In the minds of the old women, under the official surface of the Soviet Leningrad lies the hidden, pure and eternal world of the Russian bytie, opposed to the everyday byt. In The Big Green Tent, the alternative version of Russian cultural history of the 1960s Moscow intelligentsia is founded on the 19th century Russian literary tradition and the forbidden dissident literature. The members of the cultural intelligentsia redefine the city space of Moscow giving it their own meanings that are in opposition to the official Soviet Moscow

    Childhood, Literature and Science Fragile Subjects

    Literary scholar Jenniliisa Salminen investigates children’s fiction in the Soviet Union, where strict normative limits regulated how children could be depicted in literature. Child characters were to be positive heroes, exemplary, and serve as role models for the child reader. However, character education was undermined by these perfect child characters, thus authors used different strategies to circumvent this problem. The author Lazar Lagin, for example, introduced alongside with the protagonist another, a slightly less perfect character via whom the lesson could be taught. In Starik Hottabych (1938, 1955), Lagin uses an adult character, a three thousand years old oriental genie that in the text performs the role of the child in need of education.
