Abstract:
The article deals with a J.W. von Goethe’s image represented in the Sasha Chorny’s lyrics «In the German Mecca» and «Goethe». This image is based on the literary tradition of the romantic biworldness which presumes splitting a world image in two realities. One of them is a material existence, world of philistines, ordinary people. Another is a kingdom of the spirit which only an artist or dreamer could access to. At the same time he or she is a creature involved with the material existence and realizes his or her duality. As a result the artist’s image gets ambivalent. The Goethe’s image in the Sasha Chorny’s lyrics is built with reference to this ambivalence. There are two «Goethes» consequently. One is from the philistines’ world. He has to adjust to his environment, to hide or to escape. Another is a titan, demiurge and rightful lord of the imaginary world created by him.
