Summary/Abstract: The heroine of L. Ulitskaya’s Sonechka is reading a play by Schiller. The work, which seems to be entirely unmotivated on the level of the plot, proves to be an exceptionally important code with regard to the poetics and esthetics of Ulitskaya’s short story. This paper examines how the Russian author revives Schiller’s game theory and how the short story itself can be interpreted on the basis of esthetic game theories.
