The Tea Poem by D. Samoilov: the Literary Ideological Context and Poetics
Annotation for master's thesis

This work is a research on the theme: "D. Samoilov's Poem "Tea": literary and ideological context and poetics". The study has a traditional structure: introduction, three chapters, conclusion and bibliography with 94 sources, and three applications. The total volume is 85 pages.

The novelty of the work lies in the fact that the subject of a detailed literary analysis is "Tea", hence the aim of this work is the study of the poetics of the poem by D. Samoilov, the definition and analysis of the ideological and literary contexts. To achieve this aim the following tasks are set and solved:

• comment on and interpret the poem; to identify features of the plot development;

• identify works, traits which are manifested in the "Tea",

• to compare how Samoilov and his contemporaries describe the same event

• consider the period of the writing of the poem in historical and ideological context.

The hypothesis suggests that a comparison of the poem "Tea" with the literary context will help to clarify the literary allusions in the poem. The analysis of the ideological context helps to explain the reasons why the poem was not published, despite the efforts of the poet to publish it.

As a result of the conducted researches, the features of the poetics of the poem "Tea", the role of literary and ideological contexts have been determined; the infidelities have been explained during the war and the cost of this infidelity was of a special concern for many writers, especially for those who were at the front, but everyone expressed their own position on what was happening and emphasized the most important facts, according to their personal views and beliefs.

Key words: interpretation, postwar period, cold, suffering, betrayal, adultery, tea.
