Poetization of the Topoi of the Genre of Vision in P. Buslaev's Visionary Poem «Spiritual Vision...» (1734)

29

Abstract

The article examines the genetic and typological connections between the syllabic poem of the writer of Peter's time Petr Buslaev «Spiritual Vision...» and the medieval genre of vision. The main object of the study is the topoi of the genre and its eschatological and thanatological motif complex. The purpose of the work is to analyze the «transitional» poetics of the writing arising at the junction of two genre systems — the Middle Ages and early Modern Times. The phenomenon of visionary Buslaev transforms from the existential into the artistic: through the principle-process of poetization, the quality of authenticity in the medieval vision is replaced in the Baroque poem by fiction and convention; canonical topoi — allegorical imagery and rhetorical techniques, etc. The first visionary metaphysical poem in our poetry is being born — a genre in which the Russian writers will try to see with «spiritual eyes» the «afterlife» and those invisible Forces that inhabit it.
