Summary/Abstract: The article focuses on stylistic and compositional peculiarities of an author’s personal correspondence. However, it tends to view it not merely as a “historical document” revealing biographical facts, but rather as a specific genre of its own, blurring the boundaries between literary and non-literary writings, fiction and non-fiction. First some general aspects of poetic correspondence are presented, aiming to picture a certain theoretical model. That is followed by a more detailed case study: a reflection over Marina Tsvetaeva’s intimate letters to her close friends and fellow poets, seeing them in overall context as an exceptional form of a poetic narration of her life story.
