Abstract:  The book is about the identification of the tragic image specifics in the works of Russian protopope Avvakum. The book explores the ways of creating a tragic expression, analyzed leading motives and end-to-end tragic symbols, considered how to create images of the tragic heroes on the material of all Avvakum’s works. Disclosure from the artistic point of view of the death of faith theme as the main tragic theme of the writer allows us to take a fresh look at the work of protopope Avvakum ― not only as a writer-exposer, preacher, but also as a writer with a steady tragic worldview.
