This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on Soviet metafiction. It suggests that Soviet metafiction compel readers to recognize that contexts are no less important than texts and discusses the case of socially situated readers. It shows how far beyond established notions of metafiction self-conscious Soviet writing takes its readers. It concludes that it is important for readers to be concerned about the factors commonly held to be extraneous or even inimical to the proper functions of literature.
