Boris Pasternak’s two allegedly autobiographical works, Ochrannaja gramota (A safe conduct, 1929-1931) and ”Ljudi i položenija” (People and situations, 1956) lead a kind of double life: on one hand, a number of studies over the last decades have deepened our understanding of the singularity and complexity of the texts (especially with reference to the earlier one), on the other hand, these works are still regularly being invoked as biographical source material. The intention of this article is to contribute to a further problematization of the autobiographical element in Pasternak’s autofictional texts by pointing at the connection between the presented ”facts” and the inner and outer form of the works. Focus is on the poet’s ”beginnings” — the process of maturity as related in Ochrannaja gramota 1:2 and the first serious writing of verse as described in ”Ljudi i položenija”.
