"VISIBLE POETRY": INTERPRETING A “VISUAL” LYRICAL PLOT

  • Kakilbaeva, I.
Abstract:
Art is inter-medial, its internal borders are permeable; due to this quality of semantic “frontiers” there is a constant dialogue between such different spheres of art as painting, poetry, architecture, music, cinema, and new forms of media relevant to the modern era. This work is an attempt to interpret "visible" (but not graphic-visual) poetry on the example of lyrical story by the Kazakh poet Olzhas Suleimenov, who has been writing in Russian for many years of his creative biography. The main attention is paid to the analysis of nonlinear structure of the plot. It gave us the possibility of re-reading the text in accordance with semantic potential of paintings symbols, which are archetypically significant for the poem. The object of our interpretation is Olzhas Suleimenov's visual plot (“Landscape”), the attraction to which was a distinctive feature of the poetry of the sixties, in particular, Andrei Voznesensky. The interpretation of this "picturesque" poem, offered by us, reveals the functions of reminiscences that allowed us to make a conclusion, that the poet participated in invisible dialogue with the artist I.I. Levitan. The analysis had also make it possible to understand the meaning of ecphrasis as an attempt to convey the content of painting by the means and techniques of lyrics. "Landscape" by Olzhas Suleimenov, in our opinion, is a worthy example of the original way to express the visual through the verbal. In this article we have tried to identify the features of the visual code of Olzhas Suleimenov’s lyrics, to “draw” analogies and find associations with the pictures of the Russian landscape painter I.I. Levitan.
