Поэтика антитез и повторов в Сказании о Борисе и Глебе
The poetics of antitheses and repetitions in the Legend on Boris and Gleb
Languages of publication
In this paper I analyze the poetics of repetitions and antitheses in the Old Russian life (hagiobiography) – the Legend on Boris and Gleb (Skazanie o Borisie i Glebe). Repetitions and antitheses are considered at different levels of the text: figurative, subject, syntactic. It is shown that the principles of repetitonand an antithesis define composition of all text and are used very skillfully and masterly. The Bible was a probable sample for the author. Very possibly, literary perfection of the text of the Legend became the reason of its popularity among Old Russian scribes and readers.
