Миф об Амуре и Психее в поэме И. Ф. Богдановича „Душенька”
The Myth of Cupid and Psyche in the Poetry of Russian Freemasons: Ippolit Bogdanovich’s „Dushenka”
Languages of publication
The Russian Masonic poets attempted to propagate their ideology and the mythology based on it through a coherent system of poetic imagery. In this context a particular place was occupied by the myth of Cupid and Psyche, understood as an allegory of the process of exploring the world and discovering human nature and as a pursuit of a noble ideal. The author analyzes the image of the heroine of the narrative poem by Ippolit Bogdanovich as a traveller desirous of knowledge about the world and of self-knowledge, in the spirit of the Masonic mysticism.
