(Lit) is an institution in which one can only learn from a writer, and listeners are exclusively romantic ladies.
However, those who really faced the process of learning in Lita, have a different opinion, debunking some popular myths.
Nothing is taught in the Literary Institute.
One who does not want to listen to anything, and to debunk this myth is useless. But they are not taught at MSU, MGMO, TSU, RSUH and other GU, LEU and other educational institutions. Practice shows that in them it is impossible to teach only a fool. Eyewitnesses who studied in provincial colleges with the teaching of random people in the universities of the city-millionaire believe that it is possible to learn a lot and there, there would be a desire. Literary same institution AM Gorky – university with centuries-old traditions, famous for the names of their teachers.
The Literary Institute teaches writers.
For many decades, this myth has been repeated and repeated. In fact, the institution does not teach such a profession as a “writer”, a creative person gets the opportunity to acquire a first-class cultural education. Pay attention, not philological, which implies almost complete ignorance of the natural sciences, namely secular cultural. This formation of a wide profile allows the Slavist to freely navigate in his subject, which is language – in all its meanings and manifestations. Actually, for this purpose the institute was conceived so that new writers, who had just sowed or worked behind the machine, were educated. That is, the institution gives the possibility of education to those who wish to do so.
Only the graphomaniacs come out of the Literary Institute.
Litinstitut gives an opportunity for a person to receive knowledge and education. Graphomania forcibly no one teaches, in the final analysis, everything depends on the person himself and on his perception of the world around him and the possibilities to reflect it in the texts.
In the Literary Institute in general, all are graphomaniacs.
In Russia it is generally peculiar to treat “word” in a special way. A special attitude is a marker that distinguishes from the crowd, it is a status, an accessory. Those who are the true bearer of the Russian language and culture write everything, at least once in their life, but write, because one can not escape from inspiration. Often even children compose verses on complex rules, without knowing it. And not everyone who writes poetry, is studying at the Literary Institute. If not all graphomaniacs aspire to a literary institute, then it is logical to assume that not everyone who aspires to this institution is graphomaniac. People are distributed evenly, naturally in the literary institute the concentration is slightly higher, but one can not think in absolute categories.
There is nobody to teach students at the Litinstitute.
There is an opinion that people are losers who have not achieved anything in life. However, this opinion belongs to those who are very far from such a university. Most of the teachers at the institute have a scientific degree. Teaching traditions are very strong, it is enough to recall at least Paustovsky, Svetlov and other writers.
There is not a single well-known graduate of such an institute left in history, of which there is a “zero” exit.
It’s enough to open Wikipedia to expose this myth. The list is so large that we list only the famous owners of the surname “A” – Ahmadullin, Aitmatov, Astafiev … Should I continue? If we add to the teachers and graduates of Lita a glorious history of higher literary courses, it will turn out that all the major writers of Russia of the 20th were practically all related to the Literary Institute.
If you study at the Literary Institute, you will certainly become a writer.
Let’s return to the second myth. But after all not everyone who becomes on skis, become skiers.
Students and graduates are limited snobs.
Sometimes even their diversity is allowed, but snobbery stands out.However, such a phenomenon is only a side effect of an excellent education, a greenhouse environment and as an option to protect against perpetual attacks.
Lithuanians are losers, yet aggressive.
This statement borders on the fact that all writers and poets are drunkards. Only that’s why not all drunkards are poets? To the question of failure can again be sent to the list of famous graduates.
The literary institution does not give anything to the writer.
Come and answer seriously this myth. A creative person can not be like a figure, whimsically someone once painted. Possession of the word gives the person real movements and life, not animation. He who can Write, takes from life in full and transforms into the Word, doing it endlessly and greedily. Indifferent and lazy will receive nothing from Litas due to their peculiarities, a talented person will manifest himself everywhere, especially at the institute, which is created to help the writing people. You can say that it is Lit gives his students, to discuss how much this is necessary, but this is another matter.
