Description The aesthetic-philosophical category of beauty is also researched by linguists. Based on Vladimir Solovyov's philosophical system, one may assert that the perception of beauty plays an important role, not just in the poet's worldview, but in his literary work, as well. The images of beauty that we analyze in Solovyov's poetry are built upon a specific set of words, a lexico-semantic analysis of which reveals their author-specific use. The contextual setting of such images is accompanied by a semantic property matching the poet's aesthetic and philosophical ideas. The semantic shifts in the use of the word beautytrate the nuances of meaning typical for the actualization of the philosophical idea of beauty, its semantic refinement that accentuates the associative links to the emanations of the high beauty of the divine world. The poem “The Nocturnal Voyage” served as a sample for the analysis, the main component of its content based upon the salvation of the Suffering Beauty by the hero of the poem. Thus, a lyrical -epic basis is combined with a verbal makeup that helps illuminate the images of light, color, sound and emotional impressions of the ideal Divine world, i.e., the world of perfect aesthetic saturation – the world of beauty.
