Summary/Abstract: With the penetration of post-modernism, post-modernist formulae, metaphors and intellectual constructs Russian literature enters a new dimension, quite new and unusual for it. Actually and fully this process took place in the final decade of the 20th century but is preceded by a number of earlier brilliant episodes of writing in post-modernist vein; it has a quite rich and interesting prehistory. Without seeking to present a comprehensive portrait of Russian literary post-modernism the author of the article dwells on key stages of its development in its multi-faceted and conflicting nature, attempting to produce the approximate integral formula of a contingent Russian post-modernist text by outlining some of the more typical post-modernist bearings of the Russian text and showing the specifically Russian existence of universal post-modernist metaphors, seeking answers to the question as to how there, where still hovers the spirit of Pushkin, Tolstoy, Dostoyevski, Chekhov and Bunin people accept and apply the “new rules of the game” in literature, i.e. how they respond to the challenges of post-modernist writing.
