Apophatic elements in the poetry of S. A. Yesenin: Thanats' characters
The article pays great attention to the concept of "apophatic theology", which started to be used in philological science not so long time ago. The apophatic tradition, which has settled in the depths of Christian thought, has also developed in Russian philosophy and literature. The object of this article is the early works of S.A. Yesenin. The subject of the research is the mortal images, thanatological formulas and their connection with folklore aesthetics. The folkloristic commentary of the texts allows to reveal the peculiarities of the theme of death in the artistic world of the poet more deeply. The search formula of "another Kingdom" that we find in Russian tales, become apophatic in the poetry of Yesenin.
