Post-revolutionary experiments in the socio-ideological sphere were reflected in the Soviet mainstream and underground literature in the 20-30s in the system of motives, which evidenced the attempts of the contemporaries to relate the events with the same shocks depicted in the mythological consciousness of generation. The objective of such modeling was to find spiritual support in the past, helping to accept the fact of spiritual abandonment as inevitable, and to comprehend that it is not impossible to change or hope for the possibility of spiritual opposition to the processes of individual’s devaluation. In A. Tolstoy’s “Aelita”, E. Zamyatin’s “We”, Yuri Tynianov’s “Death of Wazir-Mukhtar”, Ya. Golosovker’s “Burnt Novel”, S. Krzhizhanovsky’s “The Return of Baron Munchausen”, K. Vaginov’s “Goat Song”, G. Chulkov’s “Pest” and other works, reminiscence-psychological, historical and religious, historical and philosophical analogies prompted the solution to the problem of spiritual self-preservation.
