The article discusses allusions and reminiscences in the lyrics of K.R., re flecting the mythology of the estate in the minds of its active participant and writer. Based on the image of the poet that has developed in literary criticism, whose works DOI: 10.22455/978-5-9208-0627-7-174-185 175 have been assessed ambiguously by both contemporaries and descendants, with a pri mary focus on his “imitative” character, the author addresses the attribute analysis of the spatial model of “estate topos”, “responding” with images of the previous literary era, however creatively rethought by K.R. Addressing the semantics and stylistics of the interior details in the main estate house, accessories and symbols located on the territory of the landscape park and gar den — “ancient garden imprinted”, “Garden of Eden”, the author identifies cases of continuity in the development of the mythology of the “noble nest” in the lyrics of K. R. in relation to the poets of the early to mid-nineteenth century, revealing similarities and differences in the development of the estate theme, corresponding to the traditional and innovative interpretation of the image that has developed in classical literature.
