Filatov A.V. N. Gumilev’s Works in the Aspect of Mythopoetics: Investigation Tendencies and Prospects
The article presents the survey of the investigation tendencies in the field of study of N. Gumilev’s mythopoetics. Symbolism exercised a decisive influence on the works and mythopoeism of the author, including his acmeistic texts. Various scholars analyse religious, occult, ancient, historical-cultural and literary myths and mythologems in Gumilev’s works. Through the example of the biblical character of Adam it is proved that the complex analysis of Gumilev’s mythopoetics is the best possible, because this approach takes into account its polygenetic character. A work-while direction in this field is the study of Gumilev’s mythopoeism theory in comparison with Symbolists’ theories and the study of the value aspect of his mythopoetics.
