The author discovers sources of the most important concepts, such as the “Hamburg score”, storyand plot, etc. in Russian southern newspapers the “Kievʼs Thought” and so on, in texts by D.I. Zaslavsky, andothers. A traditional interpretation of the concept the “Hamburg score” goes back to the stories of V.B. Shklovskyhimself about some closed fights of circus wrestlers. These stories are no longer to be found, up to our time. Asone of such possible sources, the article’s author suggests to consider a book by Larisa Reisner on the revolutionaryevents in Hamburg. This book V.B. Shklovsky analyzed in the “Hamburg Account” in detail.
Keywords: V.B. Shklovsky, D.I. Zaslavsky, L.M. Reisner, “Hamburg on the barricades”, the “Hamburg Score”, the “South-West”, “plot and fabula”.

It focuses not so much onthe elements of his well-read and thoroughly examined tales that will become formulas of the detective genrethereafter but on the inherent fluidity of their generic boundaries – namely, on what features Dupin stories asnon-classical detective narratives. It argues that Poe invented and bestowed on world literature a genre thatalready contains potential for experiment and, as its best samples demonstrate, seeks transgression of its ownconventions. Besides Dupin circle, the article discusses the lesser-known story “Thou Art the Man” that lacksscholarly attention in Russia.
