Mental Enlightenment Scientific-Methodological Journal


In modern Russian literature, there are not so many figures who would evoke such polarizing assessments as the popular writer Dina Rubina. Some consider her to be in the category of «mass literature», denying the right to any serious attitude on the part of criticism, others believe that Rubina has few rivals in Russian prose in terms of the skill of plot construction, the colorful characters, the accuracy and juiciness of descriptions. Who is Dina Rubina - an entertainer or a master? Are her latest works good or bad? And has her main book already been written - or “the best, of course, is yet to come”? What is the reason for Rubina's popularity - in her professionalism, in her ability to hear the buzz of modernity and competently build adjacent rows, as Tynyanov would say, when the way of life becomes a reliable artistic way of life?
