The Myth of My Life: A Letter from Iakov Golosovker to Andrei Bely

Dmitrii Torshilov

Abstract


Iakov Golosovker developed the theme of the mythologization of autobiography in a manner that was close to the Russian Symbolists (see his My Life Myth). The proof of this is in his unpublished letter to Andrei Bely, which can be dated to 1921, the time when they were both members of the Moscow ‘Vol'fila’. It is possible that their meetings and creative ties in the late 1920s resulted in the image of Christ visiting a modern town in Bely’s Petersburg and Golosovker’s Burned novel.

Keywords
