Absract: The main focus of this work is metalinguistic reflection of speakers (prov. Lecce, region Apulia, Southern Italy). Griko is not used anymore as a common language for everyday communication, and only some representatives of the older generation (born circa 1930–1940) have a good command of it. Nevertheless, since the 1970’s‑1980’s, the region has evidenced numerous attempts at language revitalization. Among other things, the language activists have encouraged local population to create literary texts in Griko. My interest is in how literary works further the process of the minority language preservation and revitalization. I also study the main strategies the authors use to make their texts more comprehensible for those who lack fluency in Griko.
Keywords: metalinguistic reflection, naïve literature, linguistic behavior, minority languages, endangered languages, language revitalization.

Absract: The article examines the book “Patcher” (in Russian, “Shtopalschik”), issued in 1922 by the publishing house “Aquilon”, as an integral artistic phenomenon and one of the most remarkable monuments of the Russian book-publishing culture. The book was entitled after the story by Nikolai Leskov, included in this collection, and illustrated by B. M. Kustodiev. Creative assays of the writer and of the artist are studied in their relationship with the art of icon painting and frescoes, as well as in the light of the cultural traditions, for which the canon and legend were particularly important sources.
Keywords: Leskov, Kustodiev, word, image, integrity of the illustrated book, icon, frescoes, canon, legend.

Absract: The article of G. M. Friedlander “Alexander Genis against Solzhenitsyn,” not a lifetime publication of the scholar, was written in response to the controversy surrounding the New York speech of A. I. Solzhenitsyn in 1993 (subsequently the text of the speech was printed under the title “Playing on the strings of emptiness”). Friedlander's article echoes the discussion, which had originated in scholarly critical press, of the problems of postmodernism as a phenomenon on the Russian soil.
Keywords: opinion journalism of A. I. Solzhenitsyn, archives of G. M. Friedlander, traditions of the Russian classical literature, postmodernism.
