Abstract: The article deals with the problem of formation of poetic self-determination in early works of the Russian émigré poetesses M. Vizi, E. Grot, O. Skopichenko. They belong to two branches of the Russian émigré literature of the first wave: eastern and western (American). They left early enough Russia and moved to the Far East, where M. Vizi and O. Skopichenko published their first collections of poems. Later all three poetesses settled in San-Francisco and they were among the organizers and members of the Literary-Art Circle. There communication of creativity of these authors with the Russian tradition of the Silver age, in particular with the Russian symbolism is analyzed in the article. It is noted that during an initial period their poetry has literature-oriented character that is caused by the cultural and historical and biographic reasons. The role of A. Blok`s poetic traditions, the systems of motives, images in M. Vizi, O. Skopichenko and E. Grot’s early works are considered. Authors of the article examine the value of a figure of the poet of the Silver age for poetic self-determination in poetry of all three poetesses as well as the idea of a „zhiznestroyeniye“ in early poems of M. Vizi. It is revealed that a framework of modernism extends and there is a ties with classical tradition in the poetry of E. Grot and O. Skopichenko. Poetic self-determination is connected with search of a spiritual way in M. Vizi’s art and the aspiration to return home and overcome an exile in O. Skopichenko’s poetry. In O. Skopichenko’s poems there are the feeling of bitterness of emigration, constant recollecting of fleeing trauma and hopelessness. The poetic path of E. Grot is connected not only with tragic experience of exile, but with the tragedy of the person in the XX century. Also, some specific features of early poetry of three poetesses are shown in the article; some features of poetics and style are analyzed.
