    Formalism is a school of literary criticism and literary theory having mainly to do with structural purposes of a particular text. It is the study of a text without taking into account any outside influence. Formalism rejects or sometimes simply "brackets" (i.e., ignores for the purpose of analysis) notions of culture or societal influence, authorship, and content, and instead focuses . In “The Theory of the ‘Formal Method’” (), Boris Eichenbaum defends Russian Formalism against various attacks. An able champion, he describes Formalism’s evolution, notes its major figures and works, clears away decayed axioms, and rescues literature from “primitive historicism” and other dangers.

    Lecture 7 - Russian Formalism Overview. In this lecture, Professor Paul Fry explores the works of major Russian formalists reviewed in an essay by Boris Eikhenbaum. He begins by distinguishing Russian formalism from hermeneutics. Eikhenbaum’s dependency on core ideas of Marxist and Darwinian philosophies of struggle and evolution is explained. Russian Formalism, one of the twentieth century's most important movements in literary criticism, has received far less attention than most of its rivals. Examining Formalism in light of more recent developments in literary theory, Peter Steiner here offers the most comprehensive critique of Formalism to date.

    Russian Formalism challenged the traditional idea of critical literary analysis that art should conceal its literary devices. The Formalist school of thought refused to naturalize text by attributing it to the state of mind of the author, but instead it focused its critical writing on the novel’s literariness which checks naturalization. Formalism is a school of literary criticism that originated in the former Soviet Union during the first world n formalism was an influential school of literary criticism in Russia from the s to the s. It had its heyday in the 's and it acquired its name from its emphasis on form rather than on content.
