It is shown in the article, that the relationships between the “dream” and the “vanity” in the Russian sentimental poetry are reflecting the evolution of its bonds with the enlightenment ideology. Having given the civilization, the negative signs of the “dream” and the “vanity” sentimentalism had later expanded them to the world as the whole, including nature and love. But having identified the poetical “dream” as the key to nature’s perception, the sentimentalism had transformed “dream” in the source of the civilization and the opposite of the “vanity”.
