Abstract

The article deals with the modern reception of Soviet heritage. After her radical assessments of the 1990s, it was time for unbiased reflection. The author of the article claims that Maryna Hrymych's novels Klavka (2019) and Yura (2020) answer the requirements of such reflection. The writer perceives the Soviet era through the prism of private memories and specific sentiments. Marina Hrymych has created a popular narrative of the past, working with its stereotypical assessments, but these assessments have been represented in the present The writer offers an ambiguous image of the Soviet era, and such a position has made this project successful. Without ignoring the negative aspects of the Soviet past, the writer still finds good features in it. For this, she localizes the narrative to the sphere of literary and cultural life of the depicted era, and primarily deals with the private dimension of the characters' lives, and their emotional and sensory perception of time.
