The article studies some aspects of the perception of Yevgeny Baratynsky’s work in post-war Germany on the example of Christoph Meckel’s novel A Message for Baratynsky. The creative interpretation of Baratynsky’s work in the novel by Meckel is based on the parallelism of the subjective autobiographical and documentary biographical layers of the narrative, which are connected by the leading motif of the poet’s loneliness in the society. The German writer considers the fate of Baratynsky as a historical confirmation of his pessimistic attitude toward the future of the post-war German generation.
