AbstractThe Russian 17th Century: State of the Art and Research Perspectives.
A remarkable increase in XVII century Russian studies has characterized the past decade. Thanks to the fall of ideological pressure, most interesting critical literature has been produced in the fields of history, history of culture and poetry. Moreover, these years have seen the publication of several, relevant literary texts, which had been only manuscript until the recent past. If, from a historical point of view, a new approach has emerged to the interpretation of historical events and characters, from a literary point of view there has a been a discovery of the Russian Baroque, a literary style which has its own peculiar features, and is sometimes very different from the European Baroque. Hopefully, all this should favour the study of XVII century literature as a literary system and not just as .literaturnye pamjatniki.
