Solovyov’s Followers: A. Blok – the Knight of the Stranger. Article 1. The Creation of a Beautiful Lady
Keywords:A. Blok, Beautiful Lady, Erotosophia, V. Solovyov, Eternal Feminineness.
AbstractThis work continues the series of articles devoted to erotosophia of the Silver Age. It deals with the formation of Blok’s philosophy of Love and gender. The authors raise the issue of relations between Blok’s erotosophia and the V. Solovyov’s philosophy of Eternal Feminineness. The problem in question is whether Blok can be considered to be Solovyov’s disciple or not. The article treats the representation of the poet’s point of view about Eternal Feminineness and his peculiar views on religion and mysticism. The authors analyse in details Blok’s texts devoted to Beautiful Lady and the history of relationship between him and Liubov Dmitrievna Mendeleeva-Blok, known as so called “Earthly Embodiment of the Universal Source of Feminineness”.
