Проблема посмертного существования (от Платона до Достоевского). «Бобок», рассказ Достоевского

Germanoslavica. 2018. № 29. С. 63-76.

In the article the author analyses Dඈඌඍඈඒൾඏඌ඄ඒ´s story “Bobok”, which concerns the idea of relationship between life and death. The text describes living of people who don´t die, or rather who are already dead in their lifetime. The story follows up the topic used in the prior prose “Notes from the Dead House”. Particularity of the story “Bobok” is based on the impossibility of a dialogue between “a body and a soul” in a sense of the medieval tradition – here souls are rotting together with bodies, their corporeal life continues after the death. It is a specifi c image of immortality (life after life) and one of the most dreadfull metaphor of the life in Russia. The author percieves his work also as a dialogue between Dඈඌඍඈඒൾඏඌ඄ඒ and Pඅൺඍඈ.
