Le moi et le pouvoir dans la littérature russe de l’époque médiévale

Authors: Subbotina, Galina

As interest of an individual to self-examination is a relatively recent phenomenon, it seems almost unthinkable to find elements of reflexive analysis of the mind in medieval Russian literature. Nevertheless we think that it is possible to bring to light some indicators - very weakly expressed but distinct - of a deliberate effort of introspection in several texts of this period. To demonstrate this we shall analyze the following works: The Instruction of Vladimir Monpmakh, Praying of Daniel the Immured, the correspondence between Ivan the Terrible and Andrej Jurbskij and The hagiography of Archpriest Avvakum written by himself. We shall try to show that self-presentation and self-analysis appear at this initial period of development of Russian literature thanks to the relations with the State and religious power.
