The most likely explanation is that the Party wishes to restore some balance between the two camps which now for the first time since the twenties almost openly exist among Soviet writers. ” The progressives, now overwhelm­ ingly strong in numbers, are, it is no doubt considered, best kept in check by having the threat of total reaction always hanging over them. This is a better and more intelligent way of imposing restraint on them than by gross administrative interference. If anybody should doubt that there are indeed “two camps” among Soviet writers ( and this is insistently denied by Soviet publicists), then he has only to read the speeches of Alex­ ander Tvardovsky, and Vsevolod Kochetov, at the Twenty10 Just before his death Panferov completed a novel, In the Name of the Young, which was attacked for its near-pornographical elements.

The extent to which some Soviet writers would certainly go in dismantling the literary and political orthodoxies of the past, if all barriers to free publication were removed, is indicated by the “clan­ destine” tale of the writer who calls himself Nikolai Arzak.
