Abstract: The article deals with the question of the impact of the poetics of Russian Futurism on the creative world of Artem Vesjolyj (N. I. Kochkurov, 1899–1938). Analyzing the genre and style of this writer, the author shows the importance of Mayakovsky’s artistic excellence and the collaboration with the magazine “LEF”. The play "We" (1921), in which the writer first used the name "Artem Vesjolyj" is compared to the play "Mystery-bouffe" by Mayakovsky. A. Vesjolyj dedicated his book “Bol’shoj zapev” (1931) to Velimir Khlebnikov, as he thought him to be his main teacher. Some works reflected the poetics of “Zverinets" by Khlebnikov. Vesjolyj combined folk speech and words of futurists in the language of his novels "Rossia, krovju umytaja”, “Gulyaj, Volga” and poems in prose, enriching his vivid individual poetic language. Attention to such processes, remaining outside the scientific interpretation, deepens our understanding of creativity, shows the fruitfulness of the interaction of various directions of literary development in the 1920–30s in contrast to the inability of literary groups to struggle and predetermined critical reviews.
