Abstract
Russian Symbolism was a major current of Russian modernism, largely parallel to the corresponding European cultural models. Scholars commonly define ‘Symbolism’ in Europe as a literary and artistic activity hailing from late-nineteenth-century French poetry and subsequently spreading to influence painting, theatre, and literary history of the twentieth century to varying degrees.
