The article is devoted to the problem of creation of a «new» human in the novel by M.M. Zoshchenko «The Returned Youth». The writers anthropological experiment is based on the mythological and biological models, and, at the same time, it is an attempt to reshape his own personal life. New anthropology by Zoshchenko leads to the change of the narrative strategies, and anthropological literature as a whole turns out to be a utopian experiment.
