New Traits to the Self-portrait with a Candle by Taras Shevchenko, the Author of the Poem Caucasus and The Testament Poetry

 

Abstract

The comprehension of educational significance of the artist in the society by T. Shevchenko and W. Shakespeare is considered in the article. They are the writers, whose works have marked the beginning of new epochs. Comparative literary analysis of the fundamental ideas of the Shakespeare’s tragedy Romeo and Juliet and the poem Caucasus and The Testament poetry from T. Shevchenko’s Three Summers collection is accomplished. The motion from Classicism to Romanticism is rendered in Shakespeare’s work by the tragic collision between the kins’ hostility and a high feeling of love. An artist serves to the social insight for the sake of the person and nation in Shevchenko’s samples. The main images of Shevchenko’s poetry collection Three Summers and Life of the Saint Prophet Jeremiah (according to the collection Chetiyi-Mineyi by D. Tuptalo) are compared. An attempt to consider Shevchenko’s collection Three Summers as a literary and artistic integrity and to add Pereyaslavian vision of The Caucasus and The Testament to the traditional in this aspect imagery of the poem Dream, is made.
