Kiev as an artistic toponym in “The Song of Igor’s Campaign” and the Chinese translations

Cover Page

Abstract


The article explores the toponym “Kiev” as an universal center of the space - time organization of “The Song of Igor’s Campaign”. The capital city of Ancient Russia is mentioned in 10 episodes, in each of which it appears in the symbolic incarnation of a certain political slogan or poetic hyperbole. The study analyzes and compares the image of Kiev, displayed in the original text of “The Song”, its translations into Chinese, and commentaries by Wei Huangnu and Li Xiyin, who discovered the artistic value of the ancient Russian masterpiece to Chinese philologists and a wide circle of readers.
