The review contains a general description of the collective scientific monograph “Russian Classics in Dialogue with Modernity: Models of Interaction” (2022). The authors of this publication focus on the problem of the reception of Russian literary classics by the modern readership and creative community. The book presents an original concept of the development of the Russian literary process in the 19th–21st centuries in the context of its axiological and aesthetic dynamics. The article identifies the significant factors of the intercultural dialogue of Russian and European literature on the basis of personal translation strategies, gives a detailed description of Russian biographical prose in its various genre modifications, indicates variants of intertextual interaction between modern and classical authors, shows the role of theatrical and cinematographic productions as an effective factor in the popularization of the domestic literary heritage. The author pays particular attention to the methodological aspects of updating the classics in modern educational practice.
