Real art hits a nerve

Russian literary critic Andrey Vasilevsky shares his opinion on literature and power.

Dear readers! Our readers' poll, sponsored by Glagoslav publications, is now officially over. Thank you for your participation, which you provided via email and in comment sections on our site and Facebook pages.

Following the poll, our expert Andrey V. Vasilevsky agreed to share his thoughts on the situation in an exclusive video interview to RBTH. Andrey Vasilevsky is one of Russia's leading literary critics. He is also the chief editor of "Novyi Mir" ("The New World"), a monthly literary magazine that publishes contemporary Russian poetry, prose and critical articles. In this interview, Vasilevsky speaks about how good literature embraces all parts of human life, including politics.

As we announced before, the authors of the most interesting stories and comments would receive digital copies of modern Russian literature provided by our friends, Glagoslav publications. We are happy to announce our winners - Dean Cordwell, Hanna Miller, Curtis Richardson, Ben McCraw and Raymond Sneyers!
