In their manifestoes, Russian avant-gardists claimed to be writing from a clean slate while in their works they repeatedly played with the motif of murdering Alexander Pushkin and Leo Tolstoy. But are the two topoi compatible? The answer is no. Symbolic execution of literary father figures practised first by Vladimir Mayakovsky and Velimir Khlebnikov and then by Daniil Kharms in his “Dream of Two Swarthy Ladies” is clear evidence of the avant-gardists’ taking into account the existing literary tradition. Moreover, by means of this “murderous plot” they tried to change the balance of literary power to their advantage. Humiliating and ridiculing Pushkin, Tolstoy and “throwing [them] into [the abyss] from the steamship of modernity” was the avant-gardists’ way of appropriating the classics’ key positions in the field of literature.
