Abstract


This contribution reproduces the text of the naive novel Tkachov’s Life (1850) written by Penza landlord clerk F. Kudreshov. Oral memories of his fellow villager Stepan Tkachov serve as a frame for a fictional autobiography, which is based on the images and motifs in Mikhail Chulkov’s famous novel Peresmeshnik, ili Slavenskie skazki [The Mocker, or Slavonic Tales (1789)].
