Tha overall aim of this analisys is to interpret the literary strategy of Ivan Ivanovich Dmitriev, famous Russian poet of the beginning of the 19th century. Especially we are interested in his polemics against a group of men of letters, critics of 'karamzinian' tradition in Russian literature. The main conclusion of this research is that Dmitriev's position could be described as a 'double identity'' behaviour: he was used to represent himself both as a 'man of letters' and 'imperial bureaucrat'.
