Note sul tema: Osip Mandel’štam e la Crimea

Daniela Rizzi    Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia, Italia     ORCID iD



This article is devoted to the presence of Crimea in the works by Osip Mandel’shtam. Here Crimea is not considered as a theme, with or without reference to the author’s biography. The aim is to highlight the function of this region as a catalyst for an original conception of both space and time in Mandel’shtam’s art. The astonishing syncretism of space and time in the so-called ‘Hellenic-Crimean cycle’ of Tristia; the connection between time and poetic creation, which is one of the fundamental concepts in the article Slovo i kul’tura; the reflections on Russian language as a ‘Hellenic language’ as expressed in O prirode slova; ‘panchronism’ of historical and poetic phenomena, which is a key idea in Razgovor o Dante: these are all elements that are connected more or less directly to the image of Crimea and to the ‘cultural chronotope’ represented by it.
