About this product
- DescriptionThis book is a study of a Soviet cultural phemen of the 1950s through the 1980s kwn as guitar poetry-songs accompanied by guitar and considered poetry in much the same way as those of, for example, Bob Dylan. Platov's is the most comprehensive book in English to date to analyse guitar poetry, which has rarely received scholarly attention outside of Russia. Going well beyond the conventional, text-centred view of guitar poetry as a form of political or artistic dissent, largely a function of the Cold War climate in which it began, Platov argues for a more complex understanding of guitar poetry as a means of self-invention and community formation. Although grounded in literary studies, the book effectively brings historical, anthropological, and musicological perspectives to bear on an understudied phemen of the post-Stalin period.
