Abstract:The development of the creative heritage of an outstanding representative of Russian literary underground, D. L. Andreev, began in our country since the late 80s, when the documents required for the inclusion of artistic works of the author in the historical and cultural context and the establishment of creative contacts with contemporaries were legalized. The article deals with the triptych “The Walls of the Kremlin” by D. Andreev in the correlation with another work of the Russian underground — “Russia crucified” by M. Voloshin. Voloshin’s work was created in the first post-revolutionary years, and it reflects the main features of the literature of the first years of the October Revolution (which can be characterized as the apocalyptic literature of syncretism). D. Andreev’ triptych, though created at a later time, in the outlined spiritual perspective of Russia (Kremlin Heaven) has some attributes in common with Voloshin’s “City of God”. The observed similarity is due to both the artists belonging to the type of visionary writers, which is barely distinguishable in the Russian philological studies.
