The article examines whether the image of the North sweetheart functions in the texts of A. Blok's poem “In the Attic” and I. Severyanin's poems “Estland poetry” and “The tale of Ingrid”. The author proceeds from the idea that the North, despite the semantic dominant due to cold and freezing, in the works of the Silver Age poets embodies the dream of the life freed from the problems of the time in which they had to live in. Accordingly, the female image, determined by the semantics of the North, is associated with the aspirations of poets, but remains inaccessible. It turns out that, despite the different ways of depicting the heroes, the poets use common themes and motives: the theme of love and death, the theme of beauty, the motives of threat, betrayal.
