The symbolism of water in creativity of M.Y. Lermontov

Крюкова О.С


Lermontov's creative heritage includes hydrotext, manifested both in natural and geographical specifics and in the form of natural chaos. Water in Lermontov's works is represented in its natural diversity. The images of water in Lermontov's work also become the basis for various tropes. The symbolism of water is connected with the ideas of absolute and boundless freedom, with the transience of time, with the birth, life and death of a person, i.e. it brings an existential beginning to the artistic text.
