The author asserts that it is necessary to create new interpretations of the literary texts. These interpretations (chiefly so called 'generational') do not lead to any final or complete interpretation of the literary works but, nevertheless, they conform the best to the needs of the particular historical context. Interpretation is an application. It is the impossibility and undesirability of the only and unique interpretation (unique result) that creates the difference between the literary scholarship and the exact sciences, where, on the contrary, one result is desirable. The results of the interpretative sciences are instrumental for discussion and fundamentally influence the whole social and historical process, and prepare new tendencies and new epochs.
