Perception of Baudelaire's art in Russian poetry in the beginning of 20'th century
Philology
(Bachelor’s programme)
2018
Given research focuses on how Baudelaire’s art was perceived by Russian poetry of the age of modernism and includes deep analysis of common literature motives of Baudelaire’s poetry and the poetry of the Russian authors. In other words, we examine some common places in Baudelaire’s and Russian texts and try to characterize each specific way Baudelaire’s art was perceived, comprehended and redesigned into new forms by certain poetic groups. In this way we examine the art of K. Balmont, V. Brysov, I. Annensky, Ellis, I. Severyanin, B. Livshitz. V. Mayakovsky and translations made by some of these authors. Summing up the results of our research, we came to a conclusion that the poetry of Baudelaire became extremely attractive and valuable for many authors in Russia who at this very moment tried to find new ways of creative self-expression. The rebellious, gloomy and strange poems of Baudelaire, that describe imperfections of the evil world, corresponded to some important aspirations of Russian poetry. In each certain case Baudelaire’s influence in Russian poetry appears in different forms and manners. There are a lot of researches that describe the connection between French and Russian symbolism, but unlike other researches, the present one is aimed to characterize Baudelaire’s appearance in Russia and his role for literature development in the beginning of 20th century.
