Absract: The article presents a comparative-and-stylistic analysis of the works of F. Sologub and I. Severyanin, containing utopian motives of a “fairyland”. The shifts in lexical and imagery patterns in the texts of Severyanin, considered through the theory of parody and in the context of Sologub’s views on the “new art”, allow us to speak of parodic transformation of the corresponding topos from the poetry of the older symbolist. Such a process is an integral part of the literary evolution, which included the processing of the symbolist heritage by the poetry of postsymbolism. The ironic re-coding of lyrical motifs employed by Sologub fits his own concept of “duality” of art and life, combining lyricism and irony, that, perhaps, aided him in endorsing of Severyanin’s poetics.
Keywords: I. Severyanin, F. Sologub, symbolism, postsymbolism, parody, irony, utopian motives.
