Essay on “Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk”
After reading classical literature, as a rule, the expected duration of the stream pressed pathetic aspirated, leaving in pathos and pouring it into a literary essay on the genius of yore. I decided to go on the reverse, and to express my admiration and accumulated thoughts in a more contemporary vein, for example in a stream of consciousness:
The first thing that came to mind is thinking about the cellular and scientific and technical progress. But, it would negate a number of great stories. For example, if you take Shakespeare, something that glorious walk through the woods in “Midsummer Night’s Dream” could have been avoided, yet I certainly Othello smothered Desdemona, but this would be thoroughly discussed all of mobile. Now about Leskov’s “Lady Macbeth” – whether the old man’s father-in mobile and give it all the information at the time – things could turn very differently; p>
The second idea was that wandering among some chauvinists men hot favorite saying not me “woman – a fool because the woman” is not without foundation. After all other thoughts about Ekaterina Lvovna just does not come; p>
The third idea smoothly enclosed with the second, that the fatal passion – a dangerous thing. Even sensible woman turns into a monkey with a grenade, to say nothing of the irrational? ;
Fourth, worse marriage with her beloved, can only be married to the unloved / no comment /; p>
Fifth, a division of prisons in the masculine and feminine, very competent political decision to prevent the creation of love pyramids and as a result, decrease in crimes of jealousy; p>
Sixth, about arachnology and the situation of arachnids in Mtsensk, of mutation and change the default behavior of “black widow»; p>
The seventh, Leskov could be a master detective. The rhythm that he observes in this work should take a sample of a number of domestic authors. Namely, images, descriptions, keep pace with the action and intrigue.
The eighth, that read the classics better in adulthood than the poison of their school years.
At the age of – it’s nice and clear, and the school is disgusting, and is not always clear; p>
I want to finish on the phrase: Read the classics and get pleasure from it p>!
