Includes a brief section on Ivanov in the chapter “Blok and the Symbolists.” Considers Ivanov’s verse in the light of his philosophy. “Ivanov’s own fairly complicated mythology establishes a scale of concepts:
Female and Male, I and Thou, Unity and Multiplicity, Nature and Man, and finally, Dionysus and Apollo correspond respectively to the Earth and the Sun.” The “intellectual acrostics” of his verse anticipated Pound and Eliot. Includes a brief reference to “Povest’ o Svetomire-tsareviche” [The tale of tsarevich Svetomir], described as “an epic poem on Russia’s national saint, St George the Conqueror.” Reprinted: 1962.8.
