Abstract: This article analyzes the letters of Marina Cvetaeva to Konstantin Rodzevich. Letters as such have a specific status in literature. They are usually assigned to what might be called the corpus of autobiographical texts. In analyzing texts of this type the main problem is to determine the degree of, and relations between, factuality and ficticiousness, and to reveal the text’s literary character (i.e., how literary modes operate in the letters). One of the text’s elements through which literary modes can be analyzed is the figure of the reader (addressee). This figure connects the text with the culture of knightly courtesy and with the Gospels. Texts of the knightly culture, just like the Gospels, are constructed in accordance with certain strict rules known as a canon. This canon is known to all and is part of the general code for the Middle Ages. Thus letters come to acquire attributes of canonicity and pass from private into public space.
