Notebook of Meilė Lukšienė
A notebook with transcripts and notes made by Lukšienė during meetings of the Department of Lithuanian Literature (1957-1958). These notes reveal discussions by members of the department and guests from the Party and government institutions about directions in research and teaching. For example, from one note, we can see a polemic on what should be considered as liberalism, and what the bourgeois democratic movement was, and how to deal with Vincas Kudirka and Jonas Mačiulis-Maironis. The leading Soviet ideologues Romas Šarmaitis (1909-1995) and Juozas Žiugžda (1893-1979) participated in this meeting at the Department of Lithuanian Literature, imposing their very negative attitudes towards these famous Lithuanian poets.
