Abstract

The article deals with the creative works of modern Russian-speaking poets of Budzhak
(Oksana Kartelyan, Sergei Levin, Marina Kopanoy, Lyudmila Oleynik, Nadezhda Parshikhina, Yuri
Yakimenko and others). In their lyrics the peculiarities of verbal integration of the key markers of the
geographical component in the authors' world pictures are revealed. The main attention is focused on
the characteristics of individual modes of the Budzhak topos representation in the creative practice of
this circle of poets. The vision of the regional space in their poems is presented through a system of
images and motifs associated with the Danube toponyms as markers of a particular territory and as
original artistic structures. It is noted that among the most frequent toponyms the artistic world of
Russian-speaking poets of Budzhak was formed by two of their varieties: oikonyms (Izmail, Kiliya,
Bolgrad) and hydronyms (Danube river, Yalpug lake). The ideological and aesthetic role of poetonyms
in the author's text and in the general context of the regional literature of the Danube region is traced
and characterized.
