Abstract:The name of Mark Aldanov (1886-1957) is now well-known in the West as well as in his native country. Although the work of Mark Aldanov attracted attention of West European, American and later Soviet and Russian reading public and critics, many aspects of his literary work still remain insufficiently-researched, and the personal archives of the writer were largely ignored. One such aspect which escaped attention of the literary scholars is the peculiar genre of Aldanov's novels. So far Aldanov is universally recognized as the foremost Russian emigre historical novelist, an author of highly ideologically charged works of fiction. But other salient features of the genre of his novels were not considered. Based upon the intensive reading of Aldanov's works and on the familiarity with contemporary literary criticism regarding different genre types of novel it appears reasonable to define the genre of the novels of Mark Aldanov as a combination of elements typical of historical and philosophical novels and of the Bildungsroman. An investigation of these trails is the subject of this thesis.
