This collective monograph is the second issue of a new scientific series devoted to the study of the forms of interaction between Russian literature and journalism in the crisis era of the early twentieth century. The main authors are the executors of RSF project (No. 20-18-00003), as well as specially invited scholars and experts in this field. The structure of the book is subordinated to the solution of the tasks facing the creative team and includes research of a fundamental nature; analytical reviews of not only national but also regional newspapers; publications of little-known and forgotten texts from periodicals and archives. These are accompanied by commentary; and bibliographic and reference materials. The publication is intended for philologists and for representatives of other humanitarian disciplines interested in such a complex, dispersed, diffuse and polygenre phenomenon as the Russian periodical press of the pre-revolutionary era.
