Summary/Abstract: The aim of the article is to show some parallels and differences between the poetics of town and – in a broader context – space in the literary works by RILKE and PASTERNAK. It is important to point out the “Ding” both in their lyrics and prose, the roots and/or analogies of what is to be found in RODIN’s and CÉZANNE’s art and HUSSERL’s phenomenology. Out of very similar poetic means used by the two poets metaphor and especially comparison have to be mentioned. Personification of “me” can be observed in its relation to the “Ding”, direct self-expression of “me” becomes vague or even disappears. The article presents the analysis of RILKE’s early lyrics and important pieces of his middle period (Venezianischer Morgen [Venetian Morning], Der Platz (Furnes), Die Aufzeichnungen des Malte Laurids Brigge [The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge]) and its parallels in PASTERNAK’s works (Veneciya [Venice], Marburg, Okhrannaya gramota [Safe Conduct], Detstvo Lyuvers [Adolescence of Zhenya Luvers]).
