Summary/Abstract: Pushkin’s works of different genres have three permanent characteristics. The first one resides in the contraposition of the completeness or incompleteness of the text; the second one concerns a subordinate position of the storyline in relation to the subject (the completeness or incompleteness of the writing) and the third particularity is an open composition. All the three features are three sides of the unique law of Pushkin’s poetics, which manifested a new stage in the development of historicism in the European aesthetic consciousness. Pushkin depicts life as a process; therefore he uses the artistic techniques that help to embody his idea in specifically artistic forms.
