Background. The article is devoted to the comprehension of the way the English romantic poetry is taken in Russia. The actuality of the investigation is stipulated by the necessity of examination of numerous facts of reception of English romantic poetry in Russia, done by the foregoing investigators, and by the necessity of revealing the typological affinity of the writers, their works, and acquisition of material in order to fully reconstruct the history of the Russian poetry.
Materials and methods. The analysis was done on the basis of the works of the following English romantic poets – G. Byron, T. Moore, W. Scott, R. Southey, S. Coleridge, W. Wordsworth and their Russian renderings of the 19th and early 20th century together with the works of Russian literature critics and publicists. There have been used the methods of culture and historic analysis, historic and genetic, and historic typological analyses.
Results. In view of the above stated problems, three important aspects have been highlighted and analyzed, they are as follows: traditionally narrow minded perception of the English writer’s heritage both in Russian literature and in Russian literary criticism; great popularity of many works of the English writer in Russia in a short period of time and the transformation of the perception of his works due to the growth of his popularity in Russia of some other kind than in his homeland.
Conclusions. As a result of the analysis some regulations have been found out concerning Russian perception of the English romanticism depending on the artistic preferences of the author in accordance with the specific social and literary trends that were growing in Russia at that time.
