Аннотация: The article deals with the image of a “foreign homeland” illustrated by the example of the poetic heritage of Rainer Rilke and Marina Tsvetaeva. The the concept of “homeland” is defined, and the features of the adaptation process in a new cultural and social environment are identified. The attitude of both poets to their homeland are studied via the analysis of their poetry. Rilke and Tsvetaeva were the representatives of different mentalities, who were not only interested in German and Russian cultures, respectively, but also considered themselves part of them. The authors of the article came to the conclusion that the understanding of the homeland is connected not only with its elevation, but also with the acceptance of all realities, both positive and negative, in the context of time, as well as the social, cultural and political situation. Rilke’s and Tsvetaeva’s perception of their “spiritual homeland” was one-sided and focused only on the positive perception, since the poets “poetized” Russia and Germany not paying attention to reality. Thus, it can be said that the poets failed to fully comprehend their contradictory “spiritual homelands”, which were in the very center of the social chaos and social upheavals of the early XX century.
