IMAGE OF THE SECOND «LOST GENERATION» IN THE LATEST NOVEL (K. KRACHT FASERLAND, S. MINAEV ДУХLESS)

Abstract

The novels Faserland by K. Kracht and Духless by S. Minaev artistically capture the consciousness of the second lost generation, fully formed in the postmodern situation. Postmodern chaos sets a specific style of life, a special perception of the world and a new personal perspective. Confessional form allows the heroes to collect their signs of their presence/reflection in this world. The characteristic features of the second lost generation –conformism, cynicism and unreadiness to sympathize to the near are a defensive reaction to the inconsistency, lack of personality cores and impossibility of the choice of an active life position.
