The present text is an attempt to revise the output of the 'Young Muse' (Moloda Muza) writers in the context of musical inspirations of the turn of the 19th century, most of all the Secession period. The author investigated the literary output of the 'Young Muse' writers, inter alia from the point of view of adapting musical terminology to the titles of works, application of corresponding vocabulary, which in consequence awoke an association with music in the works and a specific configuration of sound structure of the text, and was an evidence of the correlation of the 'Young Muse' representative writings with the musical fascinations of the period (Chopin, Wagner, Debussy) as well as aesthetical and philosophical ideas of those times (Plotinus, Swedenborg, Schopenhauer, Bergson).
