The city on the Neva from the ground was full of legends and prophecies, are readily picked up by the writers. The symbolist Andrey Bely, whom put on a par with Joyce, Proust and Kafka, created a mystical novel by appointing Petersburg full party action and the arbiter of the fates of the characters. The reader of the literary hits a barrage of huge power and temperament, where a story of conflict and personal experiences of the author are competing with all imaginable art. Dizzying otrisovany text-filled game of shapes, colors and repetition, woven of myths, allusions, symbols, and human tragedies in the background of terrorist plots and provocations, attempts of murder and suicide, a love of intrigue and revenge, love-hate relationship between father and son, painful ideas and popular unrest.
Graphic Changeling Peter Perevezentseva support the "brain game" of the author, emphasizing the layering of the narrative. Bizarre landscapes, doppelgangers, bridges, ghosts, shadows, masks, shines through artistic cutting down, like a slip of the reader and create the mystical space of the great city.
Nevsky Prospect is rectilinear (just between you and me) because he is a European prospect; and any European prospect is not merely a prospect but (as I said) the prospect of a European, because... Yes...
Because Nevsky prospect is rectilinear prospect.
Nevsky prospect ― the important prospect in this Russian capital city. Other Russian cities are a wooden heap of houses.
And strikingly different from all of them Petersburg.
