After a short survey of the poet's biography, the author points out a kind of cosmic pessimism as the philosophical root of Tyutchev's poetry. Tyutchev considered the gloomy and unfathomed Chaos to be the primordial principle of the Universe opposed by the harmony and splendour of Nature. In his view Chaos is also inherent in Man: it is the nocturnal part of our soul that hides our unconscious and shady strivings; accordingly, love is often marked in his poems as a ruining and murderous passion. Tyutchev's poetry appears as a grandiose arch spanning the main trends of Russian (and not only Russian) literature from the 18th century to our time. His works display certain congenial traits not only to symbolism, but also to expressionism and to the doctrine of existentialism. Many of his verses resound with the widespread atmosphere of our days marked by an anxious foreboding of the threatening Chaos.
