Abstract | Full Text

The article is dedicated to the question of the phenomenon of continuous developing of the main idea which unites the Lermontov’s prose - the problem of treason in love and overcoming it. The author states that necessity to solve the problem forces Lermontov to move in his prosaic writings from one work to another: from “Vadim” to “Princess Ligovskaya”, “The hero of our time”, “Shtoss”. In the article, the transition from “Princess Ligovskaya” to “Princess Mary” is being explained based on the analyses of biographic facts in Lermontov’s life and on artistic reasons.
