About this ebook

Действие происходит на Украине в городе Полтава. Поэма состоит из трёх песен. В первой песне повествуется о Марии, дочери генерального судьи Кочубея и крестника, украинского гетмана Мазепы, ставшего, согласно сюжету, любовником Марии. Упоминаются также события Великой Северной войны. Во второй песне рассказывается о неудачной интриге Кочубея, направленной на устранение Мазепы, о последовавшей казни Кочубея, которую Мария не предотвратила. За исключением роли Марии, данная часть сюжета основана на исторических фактах. В третьей песне идет описание перехода Мазепы на сторону Швеции, описываемого русскими источниками как измена, собственно Полтавской баталии и дальнейшей судьбы героев. Александр Пушкин – "Полтава".

Aleksandr Pushkin

Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin was a Russian poet, playwright, and novelist of the Romantic era.[2] He is considered by many to be the greatest Russian poet[3][4][5][6] and the founder of modern Russian literature.[7][8] Pushkin was born into the Russian nobility in Moscow.[9] His father, Sergey Lvovich Pushkin, belonged to an old noble family. His maternal great-grandfather was Major-General Abram Petrovich Gannibal, a nobleman of African origin who was kidnapped from his homeland and raised in the Emperor's court household as his godson. He published his first poem at the age of 15, and was widely recognized by the literary establishment by the time of his graduation from the Tsarskoye Selo Lyceum. Upon graduation from the Lycée, Pushkin recited his controversial poem "Ode to Liberty", one of several that led to his exile by Emperor Alexander I. While under the strict surveillance of the Emperor's political police and unable to publish, Pushkin wrote his most famous play, the drama Boris Godunov. His novel in verse, Eugene Onegin, was serialized between 1825 and 1832. Pushkin was fatally wounded in a duel with his wife's alleged lover and her sister's husband Georges-Charles de Heeckeren d'Anthès, also known as Dantes-Gekkern, a French officer serving with the Chevalier Guard Regiment.
