THE CONCEPTS OF HISTORICAL AND NON-HISTORICAL IN AESTHETIC AND PHILOSOPHICAL SYSTEM OF THE NOVEL “THE AVIATOR” BY E. VODOLAZKIN

Cover Page

Abstract


The article reviews correlation between the concepts of historical and non-historical which form the author’s artistic philosophy in E. Vodolazkin’s novel “The Aviator”. The interpretation of historical process in the novel is analyzed in the context of theories by M. Blok, A. Gurevich, B. Uspensky as well as philological works by E. Vodolazkin which help to characterize the author’s intent with better precision. The reflections about time and history occupy an important part in The Aviator, the concept is being formed both from the viewpoint of the main character Innokenty as well as in the polylog of the collective diary writings. The main source of the concept is the whole complex of E. Vodolazkin’s scientific views consistently stated in his work World History in the Literature of Ancient Rus (based on the material of chronographic and the Palaea narrative of the XI-XV centuries).
