Аннотация

Thе article analyzes the dialogue between D. S. Merezhkovsky and Fedor
Sologub that showed their vision of “poshlost’” (vulgarity, banality), which
in turn had been influenced by N. V. Gogol’s legacy. The author traces the
parallels in the artistic depiction of poshlost’ by Sologub in his novel The Petty
Demon (1905) and the critical interpretation of the phenomenon of poshlost’ by
Merezhkovsky. The connection between Merezhkovsky’s works Gogol and the
Devil (1906) and “The Coming Ham” (1906) is also shown. Sologub’s reaction to
the article “The Coming Ham” is discussed, that indicates that he considered
the works by Merezhkovsky as a development of issues raised in the novel The
Petty Demon.
