Tokarev A.A. Role of Receiving inside-out in the Artistic Space Meta-realist Poetry
This article is devoted to the analysis of one of the most important artistic devices, typical for metarealistic poetry, – ʻinside-outʼ. This technique was firstly mentioned by Konstantin Kedrov, but has not deserved enough attention from scholars because of the unclear explanation of the term. At the same time, the interpretation and clarification of many complicated metarealistic poems seem impossible without using all ʻtoolkitʼ of poetic techniques. This article presents the analysis of several episodes, taken from poem ʻNeftʼ (written by Alexey Parschikov), ʻOsypaetsja slozhnogo lesa pustaja prozrachnaja shemaʼ (written by Alexander Eremenko) and ʻNa novyj godʼ (written by Ivan Zhdanov). As for the ʻinside-out techniqueʼ, it gives the heroes a poetic ʻsupervisionʼ, which allows them to see through the earth; moreover, this artistic device helps to ʻembodyʼ complicated metaphors such as biblical metaphor ʻoutward as inwardʼ. Thus, ʻinside-out techniqueʼ and metarealistic optics of inverted perspective are used as efficient means for creating unique, outwardly paradoxical poetic images and they could be used for analyzing metarealistic poetry.
