About this ebook

20 февраля 1598 г. Уже месяц, как Борис Годунов затво¬рился вместе со своей сестрой в мона¬стыре, покинув «все мирское» и отка¬зы¬ваясь принять москов¬ский престол. Народ объяс¬няет отказ Году¬нова венчаться на царство в нужном для Бориса духе: «Его страшит сияние престола». Игру Году¬нова прекрасно пони¬мает «лукавый царе¬дворец» боярин Шуйский, прозор¬ливо угадывая даль¬нейшее развитие событий, в смерти кото¬рого Шуйский напрямую обви¬няет Бориса. Александр Пушкин – "Борис Годунов".

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.
