В статье предлагается новая интерпретация элегии А.С. Пушкина «Редеет облаков летучая гряда.». По мнению автора работы, мотив имени в стихотворении связан с философской проблемой соотношения слова и сущности. Героиня не просто называет свое имя (отождествляя себя с ним), но и нарекает этим именем звезду. В элегии происходит слияние двух номинологических моделей: имявоплощения и имянаречения.
In the history of Pushkin studies “The flying wisps of clouds are thinning... ” turned out in the focus of debates around a supposed object of the poet's “hidden love”. The reason for disagreement is the poem's ending, in which the image of “a young girl” appears, who gives her name to a star.

The persona is observing scattering clouds, looking at the “familiar star” he remembers past times, which includes some elements of exotic landscape. On the background of visual motives sounds appear. First, this is delightful wash of waves, then there comes the voice of a young girl. In the literary world of the poem the name is sounded. It is pronounced by the heroine, it is heard by her girl-friends, it is also known to the persona, who remembers this scene. Esthetic reduplication of functions of the name associated with both a star, and a “young girl” puts the philosophic problem of connection between wor
