“The oppressed are usually not mute; they are often quite talkative. Nevertheless, they cannot really speak, as Gayatri Spivak provocatively put it in her famous essay “Can the Subaltern Speak?” Instead of them, others speak, on their behalf, in their defense—oppressors who have access to the public space of representation and possess the skills of an experimental literary language.”

“Can contemporary Russian literature be so silent today? If we want the Putin regime to lose, Russian literature must take part in this.”
