Abstract:The motive of the vagabond in Gazdanov's prose, originated in vagrancy of exile, assumes deeper meaning as wandering through life to its final destination. For Gazdanov, presentiment of death penetrates every aspect of human existence. The theme of death, ethical judgement of good and evil, and the philosophy of Beauty and deformity are developed in Gazdanov's universe through a fairly complete philosophical system. The writer's worldview, which takes ultimate shape in his late novels and short stories, resembles, to a great extent, the philosophical ideas of French existentialists, Albert Camus and Jean-Paul Sartre.
