      Russia is home to arguably the greatest literary tradition the world has seen since various periods in the ancient world. At the Russian Literature Society we would like to feature many of the works that gave Russia such a rich literary heritage with the hope of making the titles more popular than ever.   The Russian literary tradition is rich in folk art and fairy tales. 1. Лубок Lubok. Lubok or Lubki (plural) arose in folk art primarily in the early 18th century as savvy and often cutting-edge commentaries on politics and society.

      The first thing we have to talk about is what symbolism and symbols mean.. Put simply, literary symbols are objects, actions, places, words, colors, and sometimes characters that signify something different from their original ism, then, is the use of symbols within a story.. Symbols exist everywhere, even outside of about the American flag, for instance. One of Orwell's goals in writing Animal Farm was to portray the Russian (or Bolshevik) Revolution of as one that resulted in a government more oppressive, totalitarian, and deadly than the one it overthrew. Many of the characters and events of Orwell's novel parallel those of the Russian Revolution: In short, Manor Farm is a model of Russia, and old Major, Snowball, and Napoleon represent.

      The Animal Revolution The story, Animal Farm, portrays a significant amount of symbolism. The book itself is representing symbolism throughout the entire story. Animal Farm, or Manor Farm, delineates the Soviet Union. The author, George Orwell, wrote this book during the time when dictators were taking over and war was uprising. - Explore kit's board "Russian Literature" on Pinterest.

Russian literature refers to the literature of Russia and its émigrés and to Russian-language literature. The roots of Russian literature can be traced to the Middle Ages, when epics and chronicles in Old East Slavic were composed.

By the Age of Enlightenment, literature had grown in importance, and from the early s, Russian literature underwent an astounding golden age in poetry, prose.

The era of Russian Symbolism () has been called the Silver Age of Russian culture, and even the Second Golden Age.

We live in a world where "War and Peace" is often used as generic shorthand for an extremely long novel, after all — you don’t need to have actually read the book to get the reference.

In this respect, Skorpion served as an echo chamber for Symbolist ideas and cultivated a readership of fellow Symbolists. The whole of the book is directed at conveying a sense of historical grounding and guiding the reader into a serious consideration of Symbolism as an organized and established facet of the Russian literary tradition.

Symbolism was a late nineteenth-century art movement of French, Russian and Belgian origin in poetry and other arts. In literature, the style originates with the publication of Charles Baudelaire's Les Fleurs du works of Edgar Allan Poe, which Baudelaire admired greatly and translated into French, were a significant influence and the source of many stock tropes and images.
