Summary/Abstract: Vladimir Solovyev, a great Russian thinker, journalist, and poet, belongs to the Russian literary tradition of the last third of the 19-th century. Even during his lifetime his radiant personality affected not only his contemporaries but also the young literary newcomers. Vladimir Solovyev´s life was firmly grounded in his faith in Got, striving for men s returns to the divine essence of being. Saint Sophia as a symbol of „Eternal Womanhood” represented for him a mediator between Man — the Earth, and God — the Universe. This transposition of deep philosophical believes into poetic forms made a unigue message of a writer, not yet fully understood. Semantic fields that represent particular manifestations of Saint Sophia in Solovyev´s poetry are realised with various lexical symbols. Those symbols produce specific semantic markings and stratification of Solovye´s poetry
