  • Bely’s attitude toward Petersburg is profoundly negative, and in that sense he is a faithful adherent to the Gogol-Nekrasov-Dostoyevsky tradition. “Europe’s culture was imagined by the Russians; the “West has civilization; there is no Western culture in our sense of the word; such culture in embryonic form exists only in Russia.” Such Slavophile passages are not unusual in the Muscovite Bely’s writing. Therefore Bely’s admission, made in a letter to his friend the Petersburger Blok, should not surprise us: “In Petersburg I am a tourist, an observer, not an inhabitant.”134
