    During the years from the outburst of World War I to the aftermath of the Civil War, the poetry of Maximilian Voloshin underwent a stark metamorphosis, shifting from topographical and love poetry to poetry written as a response to important social and political events, simultaneously going from Hellenistic and Theosophical themes to themes of Russian history and biblical prophecies. In the poetry collection Anno mundi ardentis (1916) Voloshin tackled the upheaval of war by introducing the apocalypse as a model of interpretation, leading him to redefine the idea of the poet. This paper illustrates how this critical juncture set the tone for the further development of Voloshin's poetic approach.

  • 2018. Emma-Lina Löflund. The Image of the Self

    A poet never quite at home in his contemporary environment, Max Vološin found an artistic purpose and a large audience during the Russian civil war. His poems on war and revolution were widely read, spread, and even used as propaganda by both the Bolsheviks and their opponents in the White armies. Sharing the Symbolist worldview of life-creationthat ascribed power to the poetic word, Vološin merged his status as a poet-theurge with his personal political neutrality. This paper discusses how Vološin utilized the image of the Self for artistic creativity as well as for physical survival.
