Пушкинский миф в лирике Давида Самойлова
Abstract. The article tackles the problem of Pushkin’s biographical myth in the poetry of David Samoilov. The main thesis is that Samoilov’s position is a consistent repulsion on official Pushkin’s mythology of the Soviet epoch. In particular, Samoilov does not accept and rethinks some elements of it, such as the initiation by “old Derzhavin”, spiritual and ideological affinity to the Decembrists, poet-prophet and poet-victim. Overcoming of Pushkin’s myth in Samoilov’s poetry is formed by two ways. The first way is the recognition of Pushkin through the historical experience of Samoilov’s generation; the second is associated with the individual understanding of Pushkin, based on the documents and his works.
