Hunt for Optimism

Автор: Viktor Shklovsky

Короткое описание книги

Begun in 1929 under the title &quote;New Prose&quote; and drastically revised after Vladimir Mayakovsky's sudden death, A Hunt for Optimism (1931) circles obsessively around a single scene of interrogation in which a writer is subjected to a show trial for his unorthodoxy.

Using multiple perspectives, fragments, and aphorisms, and bearing the vulnerability of both the Russian Jewry and the anti-Bolshevik intelligentsia-who had unwittingly become the &quote;enemies of the people&quote;Hunt satirizes Soviet censorship and the ineptitude of Soviet leaders with acerbic panache.

Despite criticism at the time that it lacked unity and was too &quote;variegated&quote; to be called a purely &quote;Shklovskian book,&quote; Hunt is stylistically unpredictable, experimentally bold, and unapologetically ironic-making it one of the finest books in Shklovsky's body of work.
