This work contains the review of interpretations in the novels of M. Ivaškevičius and S. T. Kondrotas.
There is an attempt to split an attention equally on both of the writers, so the main style of composition is base don collision. The main aim of the whole study is to review the following of the tradition of literal interpretation of history and the exact relation of M. Ivaškevičius and S. T. Kondrotas with it. I prefer to attend on the reception of the creation of those‘s writers and the and the interpretation of history in overall Lithuanian literature.
The history itself, the relations of literature and history are also discussed along with the main theme.
There‘s no passibility to avoid the mentioning of the fact, that the conditions of this work had to be related to living in post-communistic society, wchich itself has several reflections of the present at the same time and different sight of views at an axact episode of natural history.
At the end of the study there‘s the summary, containing a state, that the novels of both M. Ivaškevičius and S. T. Kondrotas confront with a traditional interpretation of history: S. T. Kondrotas found his own way to use an international style as fluently as allegoric and archetypical together with mystical elements under conditions of lithuanian style of living, never excluding the fact, that the reality of the time he lived had it‘s own influense in mystifying the history of this own country. He interpreted the reality that had a matter to him avoiding the literal contact with the confirmed facts of history.
M. Ivaškevičius‘ novels „History by a cloud“, containing two different style of writing books gives us an opportunity to compare two different worlds – both real, historical and mythical – and open the relations and differences between them. The novel has nothing to do with the neoromantic vision of history of Lithuania.
The description of post-war in the novel M. Ivaškevičius „The Green“ does not even seele to reflect a reality of the history. The writers is just using the method of recreation of visions and associations related to an exact period. This gets a support of the real names of persons that have exsisted in real.
The literature of both M. Ivaškevičius and S. T. Kondrotas confirms the Lithuanian literature‘s ability to interpret the main visions of history.
