Platonov. Stories
Duration – 1 hour 30 minutes without intermission


The prose of Andrei Platonov does not lend itself to the usual literary research. These are parable stories saturated with a special philosophical perception of reality: “The Unknown Flower”, “Impossible”, “Sand Teacher”, “Potudan River”, “Semen”, “Yushka”.


The works amazed many of the deliberate "incorrectness" of the style, phrases, descriptions of actions and the environment. Nevertheless, it is in these stories that the desire to live, no matter what, is felt.
