The article shows an attempt to characterise motif of the Caucasus Mountains and Earth in a way of analyse the drama of Nina Sadur Zanebesnyj malcik, i witch we can find mystical and real relations between nature and people. Precisely, the mountains have changed the life of this play’s heroine, their strength and power over humans have influenced her. However, there is also demythologisation of the mountains in this drama, cause the heroine was feeling better on the earth than on the top. The earth is regarded as more important for people, it is thought to be a mother. This is also a pretext for mention of a very poplar nowadays problem of ecofeminism. The article shows also the characteristic and analyse of existing in Russia utopia, in witch Caucasus is a symbol of freedom, unlimited possibillities and a metaphor of another world. Every of this thing affects the psyche of Russian people’s independence from the government, which wanted to take control of individual in the Russian empire and USSR too. This culturally-psychological phenomenon is likely to influence people’s consciousness, it’s inseparable exiting element, that enhances a lot of literature pieces. It tends to be the embodiment of belief in better world, which is not contaminated by the civilization.
