Abstract

Background. Relevance of the research is caused by insufficient study of the lite-rary and critical heritage by D. S. Merezhkovsky which is usually considered as lite-rary criticism or, in rare instances, as critical prose. In this regard it is necessary to carry out the analysis allowing to reveal the standard, genre and composite originali-ty, features of the method of Merezhkovsky by the example of research of his essay «Brother Human».
Materials and methods. Realization of the research tasks was achieved on the ba-sis of using the comparative-relative method allowing to compare tools of figura-tiveness in Merezhkovsky's art and critical prose. The biographic method allowed to establish the subjectivity reasons in Merezhkovsky's appraisals. Importance of the structural and descriptive method is obvious in respect to studying the features of composition of the essay.
Results. The compositional features of the essay by Merezhkovsky «Brother hu-man» are investigated, its genre nature, figurative structure were defined. The author noted the traditions of critical prose of Dostoevsky continuing and developing in Merezhkovsky's critical prose.
Conclusions. The essay is a memoir of critical prose filled with subjective author's principle. D. S. Merezhkovsky's critical prose is characterized by compari-sons, antitheses, extensive citing, symbolics. Merezhkovsky creates the subjective image of Chekhov similar by the figurative nature to an artistic image in which his religious and philosophical preferences are reflected.

Key words

nature of the genre, memoir essay of the critical prose, essay com-position, subjectivity of Merezhkovsky, general human and extemporal context, Bib-lical associations.
