The medicine of the soul — a remembrance of death 464

Dergacheva I.V., Doctor of Philology, Professor, Moscow State Institute of Culture, Moscow, Russia,
The desire to learn the secrets of otherness passes through the whole history of world literature. Each epoch gave its answers to these questions and in its own way represented the idea of the mysterious union of man with the transcendent. From the very beginnings of the existence of Old Russian writing, the ideas of finding the meaning of life in the face of death were popular. The article presents a brief analysis of thanatological meanings as the most important regulators of worldview attitudes and the behavior of the heroes of some significant works of world literature in the diachronic aspect.

Keywords: The medicine of the soul, the Synodiki, the antithesis "life-death", the hour of death, the reward of the righteous, the punishment of sinners, Dracula, Vlad Tepes

Column: World Literature. Textual Criticism
