Текст в тексте: Стихотворение Федора Туманского “Птичка” в рассказе Варлама Шаламова “Почерк”

Вайсбанд Э., Токер Л.

The paper deals with intertextual engagement between Varlam Shalamov's short story 'The Handwriting' and the poem of the minor Russian poet of the ninetieth century Fedor Tumanskii 'The Little Bird' which depicts Russian (and world)wide ritual to free a bird at the beginning of spring as a sign of a spiritual delivery. The poem serves as compositional and semantic center of the story, in the form of mise en abyme it contains the expiatory plot of the story – just as bird is freed, Krist (alter ego of the author) is delivered from the death penalty by sudden fit of humanity on the investigator's part.
