The author analyzes the main features and trends in development of peripheral identities in context of national literatures. The author believes that peripheral European intellectuals in the 20th century faced with the threat of national identities crisis and their gradual erosions. The contacts with Russians assisted to the crisis and disintegration of Chuvash traditional culture. The forced and accelerated modernization actualized crisis tendencies in Romanian national identity. Latvian national identity faced with new challenges after Sovietization of Latvian Republic and emigration of intellectual community representatives. Macedonian authors also actualized the same problems in their texts. The author analyzes the literary texts in context of categories of barbarism and civilization, city and non-city, obedience / loyalty and social protest / escapism that in the 20th century were among central guidelines for development of national identities.
