"This Deserted Country ...": on the Poem of Alexander Pushkin. «To Baratynsky. From Bessarabia»

Tatyana Savoskina


The article is devoted to the comprehension of the Bessarabian theme in the Pushkin message, addressed to Eugenie Baratynsky. The analysis of the poem is carried out in correlation with the geographical realities of Budjak, which generate historical and cultural memories in the artistic consciousness of the poet. It is noted that the ancient code as a core component of the poetic message from Bessarabia structures around itself the literary images of the poet-exiles: Ovid-Pushkin-Baratynsky. The idea of the general character of their poetic creativity is actualized. It is summarized that the theme of Southern Bessarabia in the Pushkin poem is comprehended through the prism of the intracultural dialogue: the knowledge of the "another's" as "one's own".
