Поздняя лирика Боратынского: источники, история публикации, проблемы текстологии
The article is devoted to the history of translation of European literature into Russian in the middle of the XVIII century.
In the article short stories by M.N. Zagoskin, E.A. Baratynsky and M.N. Chulkov are considered as the "protomysteries" (Zagoskin's "White Ghost" and Baratynsky's "Ring") and as the "embryonic mystery" (Chulkov's "Bitter Lot"). The works by Zagoskin and Baratynsky are for the first time placed in the context of the detective fiction.
