The authors consider the history of literature as a genre of both scientific and fictional prose; reveal the peculiarities of the poetics of literary history as a genre, study the phenomenon of a textbook on literary history and its relationship with the academic history of literature, and also introduce previously untranslated texts into scientific use. The collective monograph is designed, on the one hand, for philologists, specialists in the history of literature, and on the other, for wide readership.
