Abstract

According to the theory of class war, only very few people are worthy of a pure future. This is why in the last scene of this drama all positive characters are transferred to the future, whereas all negative characters remain in the present time. The "time-machine" is a symbol of the workers' march towards the pure future. Mayakovskij thinks that communism is not only the ultimate goal of all positive characters in "Banya", but is also a criterion according to which it is possible to evaluate present-day society.
