Abstract. The image of lilac is one of the most popular images in the Russian literature of the end of the XIX century - the beginning of the XX century. However, in B. L. Pasternak's creativity it is reproduced in the absolutely original and unique way. "Marburg Semester" played a special role in the creation of such poetic image, a German town which was buried in lilac bushes by the description of the poet. In the first place the image of lilac is "blossomed out" in B. L. Pasternak's letters and then it is realized in his poetry, prose and, certainly, in the novel "Doctor Zhivago". Along with the mentioning of the flower itself, the poet often uses the nuances of the colour similar to lilac such as violet, amethyst, etc.
