Annotation: This article is devoted to the artistic specificity of Viktor Iretskiy, which had been included in the collections of the House of Writers and Petrograd branch of the Union of Writers of Russia in 1922 and was not previously subjected to scientific comprehension. The texts not only testify to the development of two thematic and stylistic lines of Viktor Iretskiy's work in the 1910s based on post-revolutionary material, but also allow us concluding that their author was a prominent figure in Russian literature of the early 1920s. It is revealed that the realistic narrative about the present and the “engravings” about the past, which reflected the current issues and became one of the reasons for the expulsion of the prose writer from Russia on one of “the philosophers' ships” in 1922, ideologically and stylistically correlate with the works of Yevgeny Zamyatin, Aleksey Remizov, Boris Pilnyak, Vsevolod Ivanov, Mikhail Bulgakov and other contemporaries.
Keywords: House of Writers, Viktor Iretskiy, Petrograd branch of Writers' Union of Russia, 1920s Russian literature, Russian Revolution theme.
