Easter stories by Yury Slezkin

Cover Page

Abstract


The article explores the Easter story genre in the work of Russian writer Yury Slezkin (1885-1947). Slezkin remains within the framework of this popular genre, however, modifying it. He made use of all Eater story variations: from fables with directly stated moral to parodies. Slezkin's Easter stories show his artistic individuality expressed in the elegant transformation of traditional themes and motifs and the writer's ironic tone.
