Bibliography of literary and critical works (books, articles, reviews, conversations, notes, “letters”, etc.) by Georgy Ivanovich Chulkov (1879 –1939), compiled and published on these pages for the first time, gives an idea of the range of creative interests and the evolution of aesthetic views of one of the major literary and cultural figures of Russian Symbolism in the first two decades of the 20th century. Poet, translator, novelist, playwright, literary critic and journalist, publisher, and since the 1920s also a literary critic, who created serious scientific works about A.S. Pushkin, F.I. Tyutchev, F.M. Dostoevsky and other writers, and memoirist, author of valuable memoirs about the literary life of the Silver Age “Years of travel” (1930), Chulkov was also a sensitive theater and art critic, who collaborated with V.F. Komissarzhevskaya, V.E. Meyerhold, M.V. Dobuzhinsky, E.E. Lansere, Z.A. Serebryakova and others. Having linked his creative fate with such iconic magazines of the Silver Age as “Novyi put'”, “Voprosy zhizni”, “Zolotoe runo”, and then “Narodopravstvo”, whose editorial policy he influenced and in some cases determined, Chulkov often and regularly acted as a literary critic, ideologist of literary trends of “mystical anarchism” and “mystical realism”, a fighter for the social and national significance of contemporary literature. Chulkov's literary criticism is not only an important part of his creative legacy, but also an irreplaceable feature of the complex and diverse literary movement of the first two decades of the 20th century.
