Summary/Abstract: The author of the article analyzes the ways of description of the reality of the 1930s and the process of collectivization, which are reflected in works of Belarusian writers of the period. The researcher shows that Belarusian literature reflected the pernicious results of infringement and negligence of traditional moral values, and was able to depict ”the truth of the time”, the drama of the living in a new surrounding, the tragedy of peasants. Belarusian writers showed the process of forming the class of ”new people”, who are not sophisticated in moral relations, and moral degradation.
