Questions:
Today, I invite you to express your personal opinion about the novel Omon Ra.
What did you find interesting, strange, innovative, paradoxical, horrific, etc., and why? Perhaps, the initial reaction is to regard this work as a criticism of Soviet space exploration program and other Soviet policies. However, Pelevin himself denied this and said: “The book is not about Soviet space exploration, it’s not about Soviet cosmic adventures. ‘Cosmos’ is a Greek word and it has several meanings, and one of them could be understood as some kind of a cultural ideological paradigm instead of ideology. …It’s about inner cosmos of Soviet men and women and its about adventures that took place in this cosmos. There is nothing to do with the space at all.” (from Pelevin’s interview, the link is in the course presentation). What themes in the novel stand out to you? Pelevin has been always interested in Eastern philosophies, Buddhism, mysticism, and other spiritual concepts where cosmos is a measure of spiritual depth, a highly desirable state of mind, a level of consciousness that encompasses everything and everyone. Can this work be analyzed outside of its political background and why? Can this work be universally adapted to any society and why?
Thank you ^^
