THE MOTIVE OF THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION IN THE COLLECTION OF M. VOLOSHIN POETRY «BURNING BUSH»

Cover Page

Abstract


The article analyzes the evolution of the views of M. Voloshin on the fate of the Russian people in one of the bloodiest periods of XX century’s beginning. Voloshin uses the Christian mythology, filling the pre- revolutionary events with biblical meaning and developing the ideas of Dostoevsky about the ritualized nature of Russian revolt. Drawing parallels between Russian spiritual decline and mythological death of Jesus Christ, Voloshin metaphorically demonstrates the only way to revival and spiritual purification of Russian people, which lies in changing people’s consciousness and «overcoming war, not the enemy».
