Summary / Abstract:

ENThe compromised discourse of Soviet-era literary criticism, which was compared to the establishment of politically neutral modernism, was multi-faceted because it depended on the author’s conscience and talent. For this reason, the assignment of a general concept of mimetic resistance for writing of this kind is modified in this article. We further divide it into the narrower concepts of loyal (supporting Socialist Realism) and rebellious (transgression of Socialist Realism) conformism. In this article, author hoped to demonstrate the value of analysis based on close deconstructive reading when studying texts of that period, focusing on their internal semantic contradictions (differences) and the disparities between literary critics. A deconstructive approach allowed to analyze more carefully the rebellious elements in loyal texts and to discover the elements targeted by rebellious texts. Future studies should address the writings of loyal and rebellious compromise in depth, to further deconstruct the erroneous abstraction of these two literary concepts, and to reveal the games of compromised writing that are typical of each author.
