Prishvin in the last year of his life are considered.

The duality of the external aspects of his being as a writer and diary entries is emphasized. The typological, artistic and semantic features of these notes are determined. It is underlined that these features are corrected to a certain extent by Prishvin’s intelligent attitude to faith. As a result, it is indicated that in Prishvin’s diary notes, the motive of death does not even concern his earthly existence. In the writer’s mind, life goes on and has no end.
