One of the most important tasks of literary studies is taking into account the forms of parallel motives and images. Common tendencies are noticed in discussion of the works of Georgian as well as European Romanticists, also realist writers. The image of the sky is characteristic for poetry of N. Baratashvili, Al. Chavchavadze, Goethe, Byron, G. Leopardi, H. Heine, I. Chavchavadze, VazhaPshavela, Béranger, Sh. Petofi. The visible sky has its contents, as everything around us, its contents is invisible, eternal sky, as divine essence. Thus, in the lyrical works of these writers, invisible or divine, as well as visible or material sky is shown. However, discussing works of Georgian and European writers we should take into account their national-literary traditions, the social condition in XIX century and biblical philosophical foundations. Idealization of the sky is characteristic for world lyric poetry.
