Maximilian Voloshin's classical metres
AbstractMaximilian Voloshin turned to classical metres after he moved to Crimea that in his consciousness had associations with Hellas. Also, his friendship with Vyacheslav Ivanov became an important stimulus. Initially, Voloshin used the same metres that can be found in Ivanov's collection of poems Кормчие звезды. However, their form shows that Voloshin was well familiar with classical poetry.
