Coll. Works :) [Out of the depths I loved you, God, Through the delirium of earthly obsessions and passions. You tormented me for a long time without news, But no one was dearer to me than You. Introduction When I kissed my beloved, I shared My bed with You. Welcoming my guests I welcomed You. And the more I venerated You, the more severely Your gaze pierced me.

Written with a clear presentiment of his third wife’s impending death, the ﬁnal sonnet remains as if abandoned under the force of events. However, it should also be noted how the pressure of real events once again leads Ivanov toward texts. Vera’s death became wholly real for him only as a poetic crisis; her strange, short life took shape as the deformation of a sonnet. It is remarkable that Ivanov left little lyrical remembrance of his ﬁnal love, Olga Shor, a young devotee from a prominent Jewish family, who followed him into emigration in .
The global relevance of Russian spiritual history was conﬁrmed by the outbreak of World War I in June , when Ivanov declared the “universal task” of the Allies to be the restoration of a global Christian empire. Ivanov’s patriotic position in – by no means marked the end of his ideological ﬂip-ﬂops, but it did, in my view, represent perhaps the most natural development of Ivanov’s core values, especially the idea of universality through tradition. It was, in other words, the ideological position that ﬂowed most directly from his lyrical poetry.
