    lol what I am asking about is just the characteristics of these schools. I mean how does every school deal with a literary text? ^^
    I hope this won't take (hundred) hours.

    I applaud your optimism, Ucef, but 5jj is quite right: to present you with even a brief summary of those subjects would cost some hours' work on your respondents' part.

    Moreover, there are already comprehensive articles on those subjects on Wikipedia, e.g. this item on Russian Formalism. So the work would be a little redundant.

    But if there are particular aspects of the subjects that you need help with, of course you are always welcome to post your questions here.

    Best wishes,

    I agree with MrP; if you just want an outline, then Wikipedia is as good a place as any to start.
