Theoretical and Literary Studies of Goncharov's Works by Russian Emigrants: Biographism versus Antibiographism

Valeriy A. Cherkasov, Vera V. Demicheva, Olga I. Eremenko, Tatyana V. Yakovleva, Svetlana V. Petrova


The article analyzes the main methodological approaches to the study of I.A. Goncharov's personality in literary criticism and in the criticism of Russian emigrants (1920s - the early 1930s). It was revealed that along with existing authoritative, methodologically cultural, historical and immanent concepts of I.A. Goncharov's personality a morphological and psychoanalytic trends emerged describing the writer's life and work. The biographical method used by the critics in the process of the writer's work analysis was significantly transformed without the loss of its meaning.
