Abstract. In the article it examines the features of the poetics of one of the unusual authors of the Silver Age, I. Annensky. The aim of the research is to analyze the aesthetic issue of the interaction of music and words within the framework of intermediality and traditions formed in Russian literature. Extensive material of Russian literature of the XIX century is involved. The analysis and comparison of the intermediate image of the string from the poem by I. Annensky «Bow and Strings» with a similar element in the works of F.I. Tyutchev, A.A. Fet, L.N. Tolstoy, I.S. Turgenev, A.P. Chekhov, V.V. Mayakovsky is carried out. The study is based on methods of intermediate analysis. The specificity of the «string» image is revealed and the difference in its semantics in I. Annensky’s poem in relation to its predecessors is emphasized. The influence of the poet on subsequent generations of writers is shown. A musical instrument is endowed in the poetics of the author with greater sensitivity and sincerity, which gives them special power and significance. The image is contrasted with the world of people and becomes a sign of true exalted being. And Annensky continues the established intermedial tradition of presenting the image of the «string» within the framework of combining music and words, but complicates it, complements it with complex aesthetic and ethical content. In previous studies, these points were not reflected, which shows the novelty of this work. Associative and intertextual connections can be defined as the basis of intermedial interactions in the works of I. Annensky. The author relies on the same elements of time and space as his predecessors, but significantly transforms them already within the framework of his artistic concept of being.
