Young and ent­hu­si­as­tic Ale­xan­der Adu­ev ar­ri­ves in the ca­pital from pro­vin­ce re­ady to con­qu­er the world. Ve­ry so­on tho­ugh, all his ide­als are tramp­led, and he re­pe­ats the fa­te of his prac­ti­cal and dis­passi­ona­te Unc­le Pe­ter. “Rus­si­an clas­si­cal li­tera­ture has a ter­rible fa­te: it re­fers to the scho­ol, to the scho­ol cur­ri­culum, and be­comes a fa­vori­te ma­teri­al for the Youth The­ater. But in the se­cond half of the XIX cen­tu­ry, when “Or­di­nary His­to­ry” ca­me out, it was one of the most cont­ro­ver­si­al and vi­vid no­vels, the most dis­cussed, and pro­voked the sa­me he­ated de­bates as tho­se that are now go­ing aro­und the bo­oks of Vla­dimir So­rokin or Zak­har Pri­lepin - in a word, it was a strong li­tera­ture on its ef­fects. We wo­uld li­ke it to so­und at the sa­me le­vel of sharp­ness and po­lemi­city he­re. ”
