Contrary to the prevailing critical view, Rudova argues that Pasternaks short fiction was not a mere extension of his poetry. The emergence of Pasternaks literary idiom was greatly influenced by his cultural and intellectual environment and by his creation of literary language capable of rendering the novel ideas of the time. Throughout her study she analyzes Pasternaks cultural environment, including philosophy and the arts, and the thinking of Pasternaks most influential contemporaries. This allows her to trace the origin and the pattern of Pasternaks aesthetic vision and to establish how it affected his literary technique.
