Abstract: In this article relationships between totalitarian propaganda in Lithuanian literature are analyzed from functional and symbolic perspectives. The emphasis is on critical, mimetic, mythographical, model and falsification function of propoganda evident in the official Lithuanian soviet literature from 1940 to 1953. Two types of propoganda are singled out in the article, the ideological and the pragmatic. Since Soviet propoganda emphasized in particular the pragmatic purposes of systematic persuasion, ideological beliefs and routine public propoganda were more important to writers and propagandists than creative thinking about the tasks of literature or the need to engage in persuasion. Most writers of the totalitarian period simply imitated the more effective rhetorical models or patterns and disguises, competing among themselves in matters of loyalty to the regime in power. In the case of Stalinist propoganda, mimesis had not only persuasive but first of all ritualistic puposes, akin to games played in accordance with very strict rules. At the same time, Soviet propagandists and litterateurs had be careful to remember what type of propoganda campaign was being waged by the party's official institutions, first of all by the party leader himself (Stalin), also the Central commitee of the Communist party and the Party Congress. Thus mimetic propoganda required that one followthree kinds of rules: ideological, campaign-relatedand creative. By contrast, genuinely autonomous literature follows only its own mimetic tradicions and seeks to perform its own inherent tasks. The creative function of Soviet propoganda literature can be defined by two different processes, persuasive mythography and artist creativity.[...]
