Mapping Imagined Geographies of Revolutionary Russia

PBC0104: arrogant confidence

PBC 104 displays pride in connection with the Bolshevik "regathering" of Russia’s regions. Mentions of Lake Baikal and the Volga show pride in the size and grandeur of these lands, while an allusion to Sormovo, the industrial city south Nizhnii Novgorod, highlights the importance of the Bolsheviks’ belief in industrial might (W115). Imagery of geographical breadth and dominance are crucial.
