Abstract:

The dictionary of the rhymes by S. A. Esenin was compiled on the basis of “The Complete Works of S. A. Esenin” in 7 volumes, 9 books. (Moscow, Nauka — Golos Publ., 1995–2001) and contains the end rhymes of all his poetic works (including the sections “Poems in case”, “Excerpts. Unfinished”, “Collective”) — except for rhymes that are found in prose texts, letters and are also presented in the sections “Variants” and in the section “Appendices” of the 4th volume (“Lines recorded by contemporaries” and “Attributed. Dubia”). In addition, the vocabulary does not include consonances arising at the beginnings of lines and internal rhymes. The terminal consonances recorded in Esenin’s poetic works are arranged in alphabetical order of rhyming words and phrases, indicating the volume and page. When establishing the order of the compound rhymes,the space between words is not taken into account. The word combination participating in the formation of a compound rhyme is placed in the general alphabetical row of rhyming words. This rule also applies when one of the elements of the rhyme pair begins with a preposition or conjunction. For the convenience of using the dictionary the material in it is organized so that each rhyme pair can be found using any of the words included in it. This applies to compound rhymes and hyphenated words. The dictionary creates favorable conditions for studying the poet’s rhyme and statistical calculations, facilitates the identification of features, that bring Esenin’s rhyme system closer to the systems of other poets, and at the same time allows one to discover the individual characteristics of Esenin’s rhyme.
