Abstract: Western critics with an alert eye on literary events on the Soviet scene have recently noticed an unusual and noteworthy phenomenon. The Soviet literary community has dared place itself in a bargaining position vis-a-vis the government to defend a certain freedom of expression, rebelling against the delimiting framework imposed by the Party on the scope of literature. This is a significant move in the eyes of western observers who interpret it as a possible prelude to further expressions of assertiveness, perhaps in fields beyond literature. For to oppose rules of literary conduct is tantamount to contradicting the State, and could prove a hazardous undertaking; and then again, seen optimistically, the avant garde move might prove to be a decisive factor in a relaxed attitude by the State.
