Бајић Љ.Д.Д. Топос станице и утопија будућности у ʻЗаточникуʼ Бранка Ћопића
У раду се анализира топос станице у приповеци ʻЗаточникʼ, која се налази у другом делу збирке Бранка Ћопића ʻБашта сљезове бојеʼ. Испитују се његова својства и функција у структури приповетке, као и веза са мотивима пута и раскршћа (ʻПобуњени машиновођаʼ, ʻИлија на раскршћуʼ). Запажа се идеолошка конотација и трансформација овог топоса, која је праћена трансформацијом на стилском плану, односно, меланхолично обојеним и сатирички интонираним приповедањем о нереализованој утопији будућности.

Kormilov S.I.I. Sinology with the Administrative Resource (From the Theoristʼs Point of View)
Theory of literature in Russia almost completely ignores the ancient and rich literature of the East. Though it differs from the western, but still develops according to the general laws and world literature. Russian orientalists often do not understand even in the basic concepts of the theory of their subject. A typical sample of such situation is a collection of the works of Ilya Smirnov, who is a translator and popularizer of Chinese literature. This work could not be published without the using of the administrative resources.

Surovtseva E.V. Modifications of the Epistolary Genre: on the Material of the «Letters to a Ruler»
In the article an attempt is made to systematize the information we have on the special epistolary genre (genre of «letter to a ruler») is available. «Letter to a ruler» is a letter of the Russian intelligentsia to power (we limited ourselves by the study of the writersʼ letters). «Letter to a ruler» is represented by two invariants – «letter to the tsar» (the 19th – the beginning of the 20th century) and «letter to the leader» (the 20th century). Analyzed letters can be viewed in the context of writer’s biography, in context of Russian history and as special epistolary genre with its own distinctive characteristics and modifications. Listing specific evidence, we excrete in the «letter to ruler» several varieties of the genre (letter-invective, letter-declaration, letter-pamphlet, letter-complaint / request / justification letter-praises / gratitude / creative report), trace qualitative and quantitative dynamics of development of each species, as well as provide a brief summary of my observations over the addressee of letters.

Huxley were analysed, as well as their communicative function and their connection with scientific disciplines and the relationship between dynamic word-formation and academic discourse.
Kozhina S.A. The Controversy with the Canon of Socialist Realism in the Early Prose by B. Hrabal and J. Škvorecký
The article examines some fundamental changes wich can befound in the poetics of works of the 60s in comparison with the works of the previous period of Socialist Realism. The material of this article is based on a story by B. Hrabal (collection «Pearls of the Deep», 1963) and the novel by J. Škvorecký («The Cowards», 1958). The fact that these texts were written in the late 40ʼs and early 50ʼs, helps us to trace what kind of process began immediately after 1948, but didn’t get a consistent maturity in the texts of 50‘ because of culture politicization. The analysis was carried on a number of criteria in which, in our opinion, more obviously the controversy with the canon of socialist realism was shown. They are modality of narration (poetics and composition), the image of the hero and language.
