The article examines the paradigm of the poet’s image in poetry by Volodymyr Bazylevskyy the light of author’s reception of the artistic traditions of antiquity. While developing a diverse aspected image of the poet formed in Greco-Roman literature, the Ukrainian artist perceives the antique text as a background for mythological, historical and cultural representation of poetological complex images. Bazylevskyy reflects on the question of poetry nature, the artist’s role in difficult periods of nation trials. The author’s palette of poetological images and motives ingrained in antiquity is, at the same time, a creative transformation of national reception tradition of antique text that was established during of high modernism. It is noted that Bazylevskyy’s interpretation of poetological complex images combines features of neoclassical (particularly in postulation of the topic of poet’s sacrificial duty and images-culture triggers) and symbolist (through Orphic imagery and problematic) interpretation model of precedented text. Characteristically, Bazylevskyy finds these images similarly to neoclassicists among the writers of antiquity (Homer, Catullus, etc.); and writers of the twentieth century who were victims of the totalitarian regime (e.g. Evgen Pluzhnyk).Bazylevskyy also uses the experience of poets who represent symbolist interpretation of Ukrainian antiquity. In particular, he develops Orphic imagery and problematic: Orpheus mytheme appears in different contexts as a modern poet incarnation; and the motif of art becomes a part of the cosmological complex where a new world is born in the battle of space and chaos. Nationalization, transformation of a proper name into a generalized symbolic one, modernization, transition of a mythologeme to a paraphrase etc. are characteristic of the author's reading of antique images. Overall, by the virtue of antique imagery Bazylevskyy creates a complex system of artistic perception of the world as a crisis, where the poet assigned the role of a courageous guard of spirituality that is expressed in the word.
