Cover Page

Abstract


The article reveals a controversy which took place at the pages of Russian Literary magazine “Syntax” at the middle of 1980-th between A.I. Solzhenitsyn and Russian intellectuals abroad. The magazine took a liberal position and defended a right of righters to express their own views on various facts about life in Soviet Union and abroad, among them the tasks of Russian Literature. The article presents a wide range of points of view of the critics of “Syntax” - from those expressed sharp criticism to the author of “The Archipelago Gulag”, reproaches against his “authoritarianism” to the recognition of relative rightness of “Vermont exile”.
