In this paper, a linguopoetic analysis of the poems of Igor-Severyanin dedicated to the memory of O. Wilde, containing an assessment of the life and work of the English writer, is made. Feeling like a double of an aesthete with a scandalous fame, young Igor-Severyanin follows the principles of dandyism and self-promotion which tendency is reflected in his early poetry. The article deals with an analysis of Igor-Severyanin’s sonnet “Oscar Wilde. Asso-sonnet” (1911). A composition, a system of images, a level of ideas and subjects are regarded via the analysis of the next language levels: lexico-semantic, phonetic, grammatical. Without any doubt from the point of view of stylistics a set of expressive devices used by the author in his writings is interesting for the researcher of poetic texts.
