RELIGIOUS SYMBOLS IN THE POETRY OF ANNA AKHMATOVA

Maria Macarskaia

Abstract


The culture of the Silver Age in Russia is represented by a pleiad of novelists and poets, among whom Anna Akhmatova is a central figure. At that time, the Orthodox religion had an important influence on Russian poetry, with the poet being a prophet, according to Akhmatova. Terms in the religious lexicon, such as God, the divine, prayer, angel, Christ, sin and paradise, colour her entire body of work from beginning to end. This iconic poetry reflects the Slavic soul so well, on the borderline of nature, legend and mystical reference.
