"Месть Коперника". Комментарий к поэме А.Блока "Возмездие".

The article offers a new interpretation of A.Blok's poem Retribution, based on the notes made by the poet in the books of his library. The point of departure for the analysis is an image of Copernicus preparing a "revenge" the nature of which needs a clarification. Blok's notes on his books suggest that Copernicus was for him the destroyer of the Middle Ages, and the founder of the Renaissance. Blok's characteristics of the "iron" nineteenth century in the poem reflects his view of the Renaissance as the root of the evils of the modern civilization.
