Крылья революции

Translated title of the contribution: Wings of revolution

Abstract

This essay examines the motifs of wings and flight in public inter‑ pretive practices during the revolution, which were ubiquitous but rarely recognized. At the empirical center of this story is a once fa‑ mous memorial plaque, featuring a large winged figure symboliz‑ ing the revolution, installed on the first anniversary of the Bolshevik revolution on Red Square above the graves of the martyrs of Octo‑ ber. Exploring such imagery, including possible sources and reso‑ nant parallels, this paper asks what the religious and the sacred meant at the level of revolutionary ideas, emotions, and lived ex‑ perience. Resurrection, transcendence, utopia, the superman, and the Marxist “leap” out of the “kingdom of necessity” are key inter‑ pretive themes.
