In it's formal structure, Karamzin's novel appears to be the random tale of an interested traveller. Behind this arbitrary appearance there is, however, a strategy of conscious choice of places and figures as well as a conscious handling of narration. The analysis of this strategy allows deductions as to Karamzin's position in the intellectual oppositions of this period of the 18th century. The codes of transmitting messages are exemplified by analysis of various features of the narration.
