The Socialist Realism Literature as an Adventure between Realism and Irrealism

Arian Leka


The irrealism in socialist realism literature might be occasionally indefinable, so that it may result complex to interpret of why and what this method has to express and which alternative of the reality it has had to reflect: the reality as it was, or as it ought to have been – which is in fact the disagreement between Socialist Realism vs Irrealism. One of the mainly usual arguments directed to Socialist Realism is the challenge for the truth, the fight to defend this personal true-reality form any other alternative of the truth(s) created by art. In this article, I bring arguments on the exceptional sort of realism which was realized on Socialist Realism method, and which proved to be a real adventure, because through a certain technique, a specific language and poetic-politic aura, it aimed no more to reflect, but to transform the reality. An appropriate of reality with a substitute realism, brought in literature a false, an utopist, a surreal reality, which is not other, but an irrealism, instead of a plural and polyphonic realism.

Keywords: irrealism, alternative of realism, transformation of the reality, plural and polyphonic realism, reality as it ought to have been.
