Languages of publication
The article is devoted to the examination of the motif of vision in Journey from Petersburg to Moscow by A.N. Radishchev and Letters of a Russian Traveler by N.M. Karamzin. On the basis of visual images’ examination in the texts the following conclusions about the evolution of vision representation method as a leading sensual code in the Russian literature of the 18th–early 19th centuries are drawn. The development of the motif came from the allegoric reading of the vision as the truth opening (Radishchev) to the multifaceted philosophic understanding of vision as a sense, serving as a ground for an emotional bond between people and the ability to sympathise with all the events of the world (Karamzin and his successors).
