LEHDISTÖTIEDOTE

This dissertation is an analytical companion to Vladimir Nabokov's autobiography "Drugie berega" ("Other Shores")/"Speak, Memory" (DB/SM). Basing on the analysis of existing scholarship and its failures we choose a reading stance of opposition towards the author´s tyranny, amalgamation of fictional and factual modes of reading, consideration of Nabokov´s ironic treatment of alien word. Detailed description of the multiple metamorphosis of Nabokov´s autobiographical project shows how he writes dissociation of his Russian "experiencing self" and English "writing self" into poetics of the text as "incongruency" ("nevyazka") in his autobiographical self -a term borrowed from Yuri Tynyanov, meaning dynamic interaction of heterogeneous elements, lying at the core of metaphor and parody. Revealing of Russian subtexts of DB/SM (Leo Tolstoy´s "Childhood", émigré memoirs, Boris Pasternak´s "Safe Conduct") demonstrates ironic nature of Nabokov´s intertextuality and his projection of poetic principles into prose. "Autobiographical corpus" in Nabokov´s ouevre -fiction with relevant autobiographical projection and/or using and discussing auto/biographical mode of narration - is constructed according to the principles of the hero´s poetics, re-coded as a metaphor of self. Close analysis is given to particular features of DB/SM poetics: use of photographs; turning of elements of reality into metaphors and figures of sense; art of memory; negative gestures. Nabokov´s visual memoristic art, a heir to the "great" Russian literary tradition of fictional autobiography and elegy is juxtaposed with its main alternative in the field of Russian autobiographical writing, Vasily Rozanov´s bodily auto-graphy. Conclusion sums us analytic procedures and ideas of the work.
