This article is devoted to the characterisation of the main signs of integration, observed in “Prison Songsˮ by Sergey Gorodetsky, the presence of which testifies to the cyclical structure of the work. The work provides a detailed analysis of the core themes of the cycle, central motifs and images. The author points out that the leading role in the formation of the principle of textual construction of artistic unity is played by antithesis, through the use of which the development of the position of the lyrical hero is most clearly traced, which becomes identical with the position of the author himself. The article concludes that the poems that make up the structure of “Prison Songsˮ do reveal common artistic bonds that support the cyclical nature of the work, as well as maintain strong artistic ties with the entire structure of the collection “Unbound Freedomˮ. These include both a common title, a single lyrical hero, close to the very figure of the author, common motifs and images, and genre characteristics of individual poems of the cycle. In addition, conceptual meanings for understanding the work as a whole are born at their junctions rather than within individual poems, which makes it possible to get closer to comprehending the author's picture of the world, embodied by the poet in the text of the cycle.
