Languages of publication
The subject of this paper are Zinaida Gippius’ diaries and her post-revolutionary opinion writing. The analysis of her texts leads to the conclusion that the writer attached particular importance to the category of truth. She thought her proclamation is a moral obligation of creators, a sign of their re-sponsibility for the word. At the beginning of the twentieth century she became a spokesperson for the notion of exceptional cultural mission of literature. In the spirit of classical Greek culture the norm became for her the unity of Beauty, Good and Truth. In numerous articles she advocated the need for the synthesis of the spiritual and material values, aesthetic and ethical ideals.
