1 DESCHARTES, O. ďÊtre et Mémoire selon Vyatcheslav Ivanov: Commentaires au bas de quelques poésies du recueil Svet vechernii.ď Oxford Slavonic Papers 7: 83ó98.

In French. The essay, dated 1956, forms a sequel to Deschartesís earlier article (1954.1), and explores the philosophical ideas underlying Ivanovís verse. It follows the publication in the same issue of sixteen poems (pp. 64ó82) from the third section of Svet vechernii [Vespertine light] (1962), currently in preparation. These include five poems dedicated to Vera (ďEe docheriĒ [To her daughter]) and several poems written around the time of the First World War and the revolution. Expounds Ivanovís understanding of realism based on faith, of self-knowledge achieved through recognition of God as the Other, and of the key role of memory in history and culture. Includes biographical information, together with an analysis of Ivanovís intellectual and spiritual development, illustrated with reference to his essays and various poems (quoted in French translation).

In Russian. A brief memoir and impressionistic portrait of Ivanov in the


form of notes, evidently written in 1925 at the time of their meeting in Sorrento. Finds Ivanovís compliments excessive and insincere, describes him as wordy, old before his time, and convinced that he is ďthe pillar and foundation of truth.Ē Relates his sceptical view of Russiaís achievements, his theory of ďanthromonism,Ē his distortion of Nietzsche, and mechanical habit of faith. Records Ivanov asking him if he would be capable of writing a story or novel, and for a subject. Reprinted: 1959.2. See also Bialik, 1959.1; Koretskaia, 1989.32.

Analyzes Ivanovís interpretation of Dostoevskii in his essay of 1911,


ďDostoevskii i roman-tragediiaĒ [Dostoevskii and the novel-tragedy] (1911), later incorporated into the German book (1932) and English book (1952). Presents Ivanoví s view of Dostoevskii in the light of his theory of symbolism. Relates his idea of polyphony in Dostoevskiiís novels to Bakhtinís later work (1929.1). Paraphrases Ivanovís view of the three causes of the central catastrophic action in Dostoevskiiís novels. Closes with the assertion that ďdespite the nature of his conclusions, in his methodology of combining formalistic, philosophical, and biographical analysis, Vyacheslav Ivanov was a pioneer of modern Dostoyevski scholarship.Ē Other references to Ivanov can be traced through the index and indicate his influence on the work of later critics of the Soviet period, such as Grossman, Alekseev, Popov, Bakhtin, Askolídov, and Chulkov.
