SPECIFIKA REALIZACII TRADICII «POSLEDNIH PESEN» V ITOGOVOJ KNIGE STIHOV I. F. ANNENSKOGO «TIHIE PESNI»
This article studies cycle of I. F. Annensky’s poems «Quiet songs» for clear up the question about typical features of «last songs» and this specific realization. On the basis of modem literary concepts of cyclic unity as a genre form, we propose an extension of the cycle representations in terms of integrating, conceptual. Considering the «Quiet songs» as part of the final book, to coincide with the experience of writing his fading life, we relate «Quiet songs» with the cycles of «the last songs» on a number of structural features. This was the reader to became a part of the act of writing since the process of reading is ‘slowed down’ (‘freezed’) but also externalizes the natural self-referential actualization of Annensky’s work.
Key words: I. F. Annensky receptional mindset, «last songs», cycle of poem, models of interpretation, reader’s concretization.

K STOLETIYU ODNOGO RUKOPOZHATIYA
This article offers a critical revision of the ubiquitous assumption of a genetic link existing between the poems The Monkey (1919) by Vladislav Khodasevich and With a Monkey (1907) by Ivan Bunin. The close inspection of literary and biographical sources shows that a homeless Balkan (usually a Serb) with a monkey and a tambourine (or a street organ), begging his way through the summer houses, was a person so common to the turn-of-the-century Russia, that any reference to Bunin’s poem was needless both for Khodasevich and his audience. If the two texts show any affinity, it was prompted by life, not literature.
Key words: Vladislav Khodasevich (Chodasevič, Xodasevič), The Monkey, realia, Serbs in Russia at the beginning of XXth century, Russian First World War poetry
