Evolution of Style. Young and Versatile Periods of F. I. Tutchev
The article is aimed at finding out formal features, differentiating the style of Fedor Tutchev, famous Russian poet of the middle of the 19th century, at different stages of his creative life. 4-feet iambic lyrics is analysed in the space of parts-of-speech and word-length (syllables) characteristics. The use of multivariate discriminant analysis makes it possible to establish characteristics, possessing discriminant power. Different approaches to the periodization are tested. The correctness of the classification of the verse texts using the obtained discriminant model is rather high (98%).
