Remembering him through the blood in my vein (A.L. Blok in A.A. Blok’s life and literary career)

Cover Page

Abstract


The article is devoted to the study of dramatic relationship between Blok and his father. Unlike the previous researchers who described the father’s role in the poet’s life as insignificant and negative, the author of this article claims that there were some covert spiritual bonds between the father and the son. To prove this statement the author provides the readers with a wide scope of material, including epistolary evidence (Blok’s letters describing his father), reminiscences of relatives, acquaintances, students of the Warsaw professor, notes with his bright scientific ideas. The author arrives at the conclusion that there was a deep affinity between the father and the son which served a conceptual basis for the poem “Retribution” at which the poet was working till the last days of his life.
