This was to be a literature which should be accessible to all people and all social strata in the country and which would lead to the “final victory of socialist conditions of production” (Münz-Koenen 1979:52). In this, the Soviet Union as the leading light, ideologically, provided the answer by their literary doctrine of Socialist Realism. From the early 1930s, Soviet cultural politics had declared that art should illustrate realistic situations from socialist life and show ordinary people performing their day-to-day business.
In a discussion centred around socialist reality and truthfulness to real patterns of life, elements of the surreal and fantastic had been disapproved of as incompatible, as escapist and alienating. In the late 1960s, albeit in its initial stages, the ‘fantastic’ began to be incorporated into the narrative; a technique which later, during the following two decades, came to the fore fully as a means of expression. By incorporating such fantastic elements into the texts, the portrayal of reality received a new quality.
