The article is an analysis of one of the greatest poems of Osip Mandelstam.
The article deals with the letters of A. I. Zhuravleva addressed to the participants of seminar by V.N.Turbin, which allows us to restore episodes of academy life and relate them to the scholar, creative and everyday context of the 1960s — 1970s. Of particular value are the replicas, notes of seminarians and people of the near-seminary circle found in the documents of A. I. Zhuravleva — her letters addressed to L. S. Melikhova, a graduate of the faculty of Philology (1957-1962), a participant of the Lermontov seminar. These descriptions of the Turbin seminar are for the first time introduced into scientific and historical-cultural circulation.
