The research is devoted to the concepts of rhythm and meter in the works of Andrey Bely on the study of verse on the material of his works of 1910-1932, devoted to the issues of poetry and"theory of the word". The question of rhythm and meter is still a key issue in the study of verse.The paper reveals the problems of the concept of "rhythm", which combines formal and semantic elements. The interaction of rhythm, meter, and language is determined by rhythm. Bely combines the worldview, creative and analytical principles in his approach to verse analysis, which makes it difficult to perceive the "exact methods" of verse analysis proposed by him. The paper explores the concept of "gesture of rhythm" by A. Bely as a special intonation meaning of poetic speech associated with an abstract language meaning. The meter turns out to be a projection of rhythm in form and the basis of the style of "poetic prose".
