Замаскированный поэт: автобиографические фрагменты Николая Клюева

Roberto Sarracco


These seven autobiographical fragments, written between 1919 and 1930, are of interest not only because of their fictional features, but rather because of the relationship of their semiotical structures with apophatical ways of thinking and the processes of reality deformation, which are typical for sectarian Old-Believer’s literature and the Symbolists’ zhiznetvorčestvo (‘life-art’). 

This way every aspect of reality has a thick net of symbolical and theological references, as in the spiritual art of iconography: every aspect of the author’s life acquires a particular meaning, in a process of sense-making. Kliuev’s fragments are remnants of a literature and of a world.
