Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses fiction from the seventeen years period to investigate the basic characteristics of and ideological factors behind "revolutionary narrative". Fictional narrative from the seventeen years period addresses the process of establishing a modern nation-state and involves the two major themes of revolutionary history and "socialist transformation". The fictional texts from this period present the basic features of the revolution in narrative. Accordingly, narrative from the seventeen years period has two clearly distinguished types of characters. Beloved by readers, attacked by critics, and gutted by editors, these texts show the richness of artistic creation that lies behind the formulaic surface and provide a glimpse of the complex aspects of modernity in literature of the seventeen years period.
