Languages of publication
The aim of this article is to analyze two poems by modern Russian poet David Samoylov – “Hospital poem” (1943) and “The Komandorov’s Footsteps” (1950). In these early poems there are echoes of the myth of Don Juan. We have tried to find and to analyze all signals of this popular myth in both texts by Samoylov (characters, situations, motives). It has given us the opportunity to broaden their meaning thanks to taking into consideration the individual understanding of the popular myth by the writer.
