Veniamin Aleksandrovich Kaverin

Veniamin Aleksandrovich Kaverin

Kaverin, Veniamin Aleksandrovich, 1902-89, Russian novelist and short-story writer. He was a member of the literary group that called itself the Serapion Brothers, and he expounded that circle's creed of independence of art from politics in the story The Unknown Artist (1931, tr. 1947). Later Kaverin turned to a more conventional style. A long novel, The Fulfillment of Desires (1934-35, tr. The Larger View, 1938), deals with the adjustment of the intellectual to Soviet society. His later work includes Open Book (1949-56, tr. 1957).
