Екатерина Константиновна Лившиц и ее свидетельства
The article deals with the memoires of Benedikt Lifshitz widow
The article deals with the unknown poem of N.I. Yazvitsky that the author wrote in the period of mental disorder. We suggest some methods to work with such texts.
The article discusses principal differences between three pamphlet depictions of N.V.Kukol'nik in I.I.Panaev's writings (an early tale, a New Poet's feuilleton and memoires) and the reasons, that motivated Panaev ito give up n his later texts the depiction of Kukol'nik personal noticeable trait - declared pragmatism; also some particularities of Kukol'nik behaviour in the epoch of literary professionalization are discussed.
The article contains the contrastive analysis of the ways homeland/motherland is presented in Russian and English poetry. Titles of the poems devoted to their native country become material for this analysis.
The cycle "Imitations of the Ancients" (1821) is described in the article as an episode from Batyushkov's reception-derived practices. Sources for three of the six miniatures in "Imitations" are found (fragments of Saadi's "Gulistan"as adapted by J.-H. Herder), as well as the syntactic-compositional model for another miniature ("Когда в страдании девица отойдет..."/"When the maiden, suffering, passes away..."). Analysis of how this model functions provides the basis for a hypothesis for precising the manner in which topoi in this text are linked to its plot.
