BICHEVSKAYA, JEANNE,
Poet Pesni Bulata Okudzhavy / Sings Bulat Okujava's Songs
. 33 Phono record/stereo record, Melodiya, 1985, the titles of the songs are on the back of the sleeve in Russian and English.
¶ Zhanna Vladimirovna Bichevskaya (or Jeanne Bichevskaya, born 1944), is a prominent Soviet and Russian singer and folk musician. She was born in Moscow and in 1971 she graduated from the Moscow Circus and Performing Arts School. She was teacher of music in Zagorsk (Sergiev Posad). In the 1970s, Zhanna started to perform Russian folk songs and romances. At that time she was deeply influenced by Bulat Okudzhava, and she quickly gained popularity in Russia and abroad with some critics dubbing her the Russian Joan Baez. Her unique style of music is often described as Russian country-folk. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, Zhanna Bichevskaya's songs started to have more political, nationalist and spiritual themes. She performed a series of White Guard officer's songs, as well as a series of religious songs. The lyrics to the latter were composed by Father Roman, a priest of the Pskovo-Pechorsky Monastery. In 1999, Zhanna also became the host of her own show on Voice of Russia radio station.

D'IAKONOVA, ELIZAVETA ALEKSANDROVNA [ 1874-1902 ]
Dnevnik Elizavety D'iakonovoi 1886-1902 G. : Literaturnye Etiudy, Stikhotvoreniiya, Stat'i, Pis'ma.
. Izdanie 4-e, znachitel'no dopolnennoe. Pod red. i s vstupitel'nymi stat'yami A.A.D'yakonova. Moskva, izdanie V.M.Sablina, 1912; 836PP. bound in new cloth, title page repaired as right bottom corner was missing , new end papers and title label
¶ D'iakonova came to fame posthumously, as the author of a diary which was frequently compared to Bashkirtseva's. The diary's success was due to the author's frankness, the timely "woman question' issues that it touched on, and the view of many that she 'typified" young women of her generation. D'iakonova was bom into a merchant family in the village of Nerekhta in 1874. In her diary she describes her mother as despotic and unloving. She completed secondary school in laroslavl' and then wanted to continue her education at the university level, but her mother was strongly opposed to her attending. D'iakonova was forced to wait four years to apply for entrance into the Higher Courses for Women in SPb. when she would no longer need parental approval. Even then her mother was able to block her acceptance for a while. The courses had been her escape, and their reality proved to be a great disappointment. While still a student, she began her literary career with the publication of a translation. Then she published an article, "Women's Education" (Zhenskoe obrazovanie), in the journal Women's Came (ZhenD) and several fictional sketches under the pseudonym E. Nerekhtskaia/D'iakonova graduated from the courses in 1899, She rejected an earlier idea of going to work as a rural schoolteacher. Instead she traveled around Russia. In 1900 she went 10 Paris and started law school at the Sorbonne. She used her life abroad in Paris and London as the basis of several semi-fictional pieces which she published in the journals Kitvite (KievI) and Northern Land (Severnyi krai). While at the Sorbonne, D'takonova developed an obsessive crush on a French doctor and psychologist. She visited him under the pretext of having a psychologically caused illness. These efforts came to nothing. In 1902, at the age of twenty-eight she committed suicide [ DL 3/5 ].

Procesot na dobli`uvawe na pismeniot i narodniot jazik zavruva vo po etokot na XIX vek vo knigite na makedonskite prerodbenici Joakim Krovski i Kiril Pejinovi} see: Library of Congress Z115.2 .S55 t. 3. note: Damaskin (Bulgarian: ????????) is a chronicle of church-liturgical books. Later, the damaskins became church collections with teaching words and lives. They appeared at the end of the 16th century in the western Bulgarian lands and existed until the middle of the 19th century. For the most part, the damaskins were written in a simple, accessible language for ordinary people. Typically, damask is a type of decoration on a metal or leather handicraft whose etymology originates in the city of Damascus. The name "damaskin" comes from the name of the first author of such a book - the Greek writer of the 16th century Damaskinos Stouditis, whose work "Thesauros" (????????; 1558) contains 36 lives and teachings (printed in Venice). It was first translated into Bulgarian by Bishop Gregory Prilepski in the Holy Trinity skete at the Great Lavra Monastery in Athos. The first damaskins included only translations of Damaskinos Stouditis' works, and later, after the middle of the 17th century, they were combined with translations of works by other authors. In the 18th century, part of the damaskins were out of church practice and often turned into readable collections. The damaskins are written in an accessible, spoken vernacular and have a fascinating way of exhibiting. They contain works of different genre and with different themes - of modern Greek authors, ancient Bulgarian ones, different lives, teachings, apocrypha, historical works, religious stories, stories, aphorisms and others. The damaskins marks the transition from Middle Bulgarian to New Bulgarian, which was standardized in the 19th century. The transition to analytical Bulgarian is also noted. Until the 16th century, the Middle Bulgarian was one of the four literary languages of the Ottoman Sultan's office. After that, from the 17th century it developed on a popular basis, and from the 18th century it gained Russian influence over the Bulgarian language through literature after the reforms of Peter the Great.

" ISBN: 574520088X ; " OCLC Record Number: 54531022 Founded in 1928 by Daniil Kharms and Alexander Vvedensky, OBERIU became notorious for provocative performances which included circus-like stunts, readings of what was perceived as nonsensical verse, and theatrical presentations, such as Kharms's Elizabeth Bam, that foreshadowed the European Theatre of the Absurd. The presentations took place in venues ranging from theaters and university auditoriums to dormitories and prisons. The group's actions were derided as "literary hooliganism" in the ever-more conservative press of the late 1920s. It was chastised even more in the early 1930s, and many of its associates were arrested. The OBERIU has often been called "the last Soviet avant-garde.". (ISBN: 574520088X) .
