«SHESTOJ UDAR» ТCIKLA KUZMINA «FOREL' RAZBIVAET LED» NA FONE BALLADNOJ TRADICII
This article makes an attempt to consider «The 6th Thrust» of Mikhail Kuzmin’s famous cycle «The Trout Breaks the Ice» (1927) against the background of English balladic tradition: folklore songs and broadsides; the poetry of English Romanticism; German «Lenore» topos, which in its turn influenced Russian Sentimentalists and (Pre)Romantics; the Russian Anglicized ballad of the Modernist epoch; and, last but not least, Russian translations of English and American ballad classics. In «The 6th Thrust», Kuzmin ignores the main balladic trends of the 1920s. His piece is an anachronistic version of the English Romantic ballad, while his contemporaries modernized the balladic genres, in particular, by singing war and economic victories of the Soviet state. Yet another difference is that «The 6th Thrust» is perfectly well written while Kuzmin’s contemporaries paid little attention to style and special requirements of the genre. «The 6th Thrust»’s only rival was Vladislav Khodasevich’s «John Bottom» – mainly due to its British repertoire and sophisticated treatment of «Lenore» topos. Appended to the article is a list of ballads (in the broad sense of this term) written between 1890 and 1939 (more than 150 titles).
Key words: English ballad, Romantic ballad, ballads in Russian Modernism, stylization, «The Trout Breaks the Ice» by M. Kuzmin, «John Bottom» by V. Khodasevich, Russian Modernist translations of English-language ballads.
