"The Twelve" by Alexander Blok. 1918 (optional)
This narrative poem is studied as a symbolic work that continues and ends Blok's "trilogy of Incarnation". The main principles of the poetics are analysed, i.e. the influence of cinematography and chastushkas, the system of characters, colour symbolism, the end and its controversial interpretations.
