Abstract: The article discloses a methodological problem of planning the course of modern literature at school. The author agrees with the researchers who believe that the most productive way to structure the course is to correlate contemporary poems with classical works studied at school. From the point of view of this paper, Anna Russ’s poetry may be included in the course of modern poetry for high school, as, on the one hand, it has something in common with the poems of V. Mayakovsky, M. Tsvetayeva, and A. Blok to some extent, on the other hand, it will be of interest to teenagers with its up-to-date problems and vivid images. Anna Russ has managed to reproduce the voice of the others, the mind on the others and thus she portrays a role model. The lyrical heroine of A. Russ is eccentric, passionate and vulnerable, as well the poetess herself, which creates a peculiar emotional pattern of the poems full of transitions from serious to funny, form loud to quiet and touching. Anna Russ experiments with word segmentation, she gets the best of the way it sounds. The plan of a lesson described in this article emphasizes the specific features of the style of Anna Russ, whose works resonate with the classical Russian poetry.
