The canon of Russian poetry has been reshaped since the fall of the Soviet Union.

The hero s descent into the Underworld is not only one of the oldest stories in western literature; it is also one of the most often retold. Why do so many modern poets - British and American, black and white, male and female, from the metropole and from the margins - stage Underworld descents in their works? Through a series of contextualized close readings, this study traces the cultural work performed by modern deployments of the classical narrative. While some poets engage their literary forebears to exorcise anxiety and others use Hell to sharpen their cultural critique, most recent poets, including James Merrill, Derek Walcott, Tony Harrison, and Seamus Heaney, have found the Underworld descent to be a useful framework for addressing the claims of history and politics. At the heart of Thurston s argument is a sharply drawn distinction between nekuia and katabasis, two phases of epic transactions with the underworld that he persuasively aligns with poetic tradition and political engagement.
Twentieth-Century Russian Poetry
In the early years of the 20th century, rhymed lyric poetry , usually expressing the feelings of the poet, was the dominant poetic form in America,  Europe and the British colonies. The relevance and acceptability of the lyric in the modern age was, though, called into question by modernism , the growing mechanization of human experience and the harsh realities of war. After the Second World War the form was again championed by the New Criticism , and in the late 20th century lyric once again became a mainstream poetic form. The dominance of lyric was challenged by American experimental modernists such as Ezra Pound , T. Eliot , H. Defenders of lyric poetry in the early 20th century saw it as an ally in the fight against mechanization, standardization and the commodification of human activities. The tension between the traditional subjects of lyric poetry and the horrors of war are expressed in the war poetry of Wilfred Owen , Siegfried Sassoon and Ivor Gurney.

The 20th century opened with great hope but also with some apprehension , for the new century marked the final approach to a new millennium. For many, humankind was entering upon an unprecedented era. To achieve such transformation, outmoded institutions and ideals had to be replaced by ones more suited to the growth and liberation of the human spirit. The death of Queen Victoria in and the accession of Edward VII seemed to confirm that a franker, less inhibited era had begun.

The Philhellenes in the War of Independence
Там она и стала тем, кого японцы именуют хибакуся - человеком, подвергшимся облучению. Через девятнадцать лет, в возрасте тридцати шести лет, она лежала в родильном отделении больницы, страдая от внутреннего кровотечения, и знала, что умирает. Она не знала лишь того, что смерть избавит ее от еще большего ужаса: ее единственный ребенок родится калекой. Отец Энсея так ни разу и не взглянул на сына. Ошеломленный потерей жены и появлением на свет неполноценного, по словам медсестер, ребенка, которому скорее всего не удастся пережить ночь, он исчез из больницы и больше не вернулся.
