«NEW BIOGRAPHISM» IN MODERN RUSSIAN LITERATURE

Abstract: 

«New Biographism» is one of the most important trends in contemporary Russian literature. It emerges first in “the new drama” of the end of the 19th - the beginning of the 20th century, in the prose created by the playwrights of “the new drama” and within the postmodern paradigm. As opposed to the autobiographies of the 19th and 20th century, “new biographies” lose their genre-forming functions, and become one of the main mechanism of generating meaning and building up conflicts.

Key words: 

«new biographism», new drama, modern Russian literature.
