Ключові слова:Volodymyr Bazylevskyi, topos, state, national identity, intertextuality
The article analyses the artistic variants of the topos «the state» in the author’s poetic model of national identity on the material of the works by Volodymyr Bazylevskyi. The ideological connection of the poet’s concept with the views on the historical process of Panteleimon Kulish and Yevhen Malanyuk as an evidence of continuity in the tradition of Ukrainian artistic historiosophy is explored. It is noted that Bazylevskyi understands the problem of Ukrainian national identity in an inextricable connection with the historical events of Ukraine, Europe and the world as a whole. Topos «the state» represents artistic images of historical, folklore and literary origin. In their representation, Bazylevskyi actively uses a wide range of intertextual tools — citations, reminiscences, and allusions. The poet acts as a critic of the established national character of Ukrainians, continuing the historiosophical tradition of Panteleimon Kulish and Yevhen Malanyuk. The Ukraine as a state appears in the work of Bazylevskyi on the basis of contrast between the heroic past and the ruinous present. According to Bazylevskyi, the flowering of the Ukrainian state is impossible without a critical reflection on the mistakes of the past, the perfect study of history lessons.
