ABOUT THE PROSE ANTHOLOGY OF RUSSIAN GERMANS (THE SECOND HALF OF THE XX-XXI CENTURIES) IN RUSSIAN AND GERMAN: RELEVANCE, ADDRESSEE, GENRE REPERTOIRE

Abstract


The article is devoted to a new collection of literature, the Anthology of Russian-German prose (the second half of the XXth - beginning of XXIst century) titled “In der Luft wachst ein Glockenturm aus Lauten” (Moscow, “Rus-Deutch media”, 2016). The book is based on the additional program developed by Ethno-Cultural Education Institute, “Ethnic Picture of the World in Literature” (2013) and a special course program by the Russian State University for the Humanities, “Ethnic Picture of the World in Literature”, (2013). The target audience are Russian-German bilinguals.The paper describes the Anthology and closely examines the genre of the Russian-German novel. We’ve come to conclusion that this prose become more complicated in plot and action, and now it is delving into metaphysical depths of the language. Russian-German authors are gradually drifting away from purely national themes.
