THE ‘EVENING GATHERINGS’ (VEČERA) IN RUSSIAN PROSE BETWEEN THE END OF THE 1800s AND THE FIRST DECADE OF THE 1900s. “IL SOSIA” (1828) BY A. POGOREL’SKIJ Within the cultural climate that between the 1820s and 1830s witnessed the success of the romantic poetics in Russia, what is much applauded by the public is a type of story within the framework of the Večera (‘evening gatherings’), a prose-like cliché of ancient origin that is deeply-rooted in a tradition that was consolidated in Russia in the century before. In the paper, the steps are retraced according to which this narrative type established itself in the Russian literary culture between the 18th and the beginning of the 19th century, in order to bring into focus the case of the “Sosia ovvero Le mie serate nella Piccola Russia” (1828) by A. Pogorel’skij. This tale is an emblematic example of the transformation that takes place in the narration organised in ‘evenings’ within the evolutionary itineraries that characterise the romantic novelistic cycle.
