And you re-read the Russian classics? As is not present ?! Ordinary history...

As so?. And, at school beat off desire? Sadly, sadly. Though he is familiar. School analysis Tatyana`s image as typical representative of that is this and tiresome Vera Pavlovna`s dreams can really beat off any desire to read it. But nevertheless it is vain. And besides there is much what at school was not managed to be dried and pinned pins.

Here for example, of Potters. Ivan Aleksandrovich . I do not know how now, and in my time at school by the way managed to condemn Oblomov as a typical parasite, and all. And here Ordinary history (fortunately!) did not pass. And what good, sound book. Both clever, and ridiculous and just very ridiculous. At first sight...

In - attracts the first and fine language, absolutely slightly - slightly ancient pleases her, well unless Goncharov writes not houses and doma and generally language quite modern. In - the second, a classical fascinating plot the young man from the province goes to St. Petersburg to win the world . What picturesque pictures of provincial life, then impressions in the capital, what types and speech characteristics of it! But the most important is the depth and multiple layers of the novel. Surprisingly, but this novel and remained misunderstood!

In the old literary encyclopedia the complete nonsense is told:

Alexander Aduyev from Ordinary history corresponds to Oblomov and Paradise ( Break ) the same as Pyotr Aduyev - to Stoltz and then to Tushino. Appreciating businessmen as the sober business people going for change it is feudal - to farmstead way, Goncharov at the same time does not accept their narrow-mindedness and frank egoism which he distinguished in the first novel (in Pyotr Aduyev`s image).

A in a new grant a little differently:

A basis of work is comparison of two outlooks on life - life according to reason and life according to feelings. Fight of these outlooks is realized in the book in two central images - the uncle who personifies rationality, and his nephew who expresses himself idealism and emotionality.

I both times - bad shot! Well absolutely idea not in it!...

At first sight really, the main character - young Alexander Aduyev - is presented to us as the enthusiastic, pure dreamer, and the second main character - Pyotr Ivanovich Aduyev, Alexander`s uncle - as the cynic and the skeptic, enemy of sincere outpourings . But it is the most top layer, the most superficial! Only having read to

all book, having closed and having considered it, we understand: all this external. Visibility! Despite the ideals and skeptical monologues said by the uncle stated by Alexander - their acts completely and in everything contradict it . Alexander loftily and ardently preaches self-sacrifice for love and friendship, constancy and fidelity - and itself arrives as the egoist and does to all relatives one harm.

A the uncle who speaks skeptically cynically and super - mega - is sober - in all the acts, it appears, shows nobility and does good much... He accepted the uninvited nephew who fell down it from the province, arranged it the apartment, strove on service for it, helped councils, offered even money... He gently cared for the wife. He, eventually, unlike careerists and playboys, was the most useful member of society as worked hard and developed the Russian production. Only did not shout of it at all intersections, did not parade the good deeds and the merits, and opposite, covered it with vneshy scepticism and affected coldness...

Ideally - enthusiastic Alexander without a moment`s hesitation uses his help, and itself does not bring to anybody the slightest advantage and any good. He is exacting and captious in love, is not especially jealous in service, absolutely forgot the old woman - mother in the village (it was which only light in eyes), neglected a good attitude of Lisa, the aunt and for its participation paid back it with the complete indifference to its problems... At the end of the book he marries the rich bride, having forgotten even to take an interest in her consent.

And what we see? Alexander, empty and vainglorious to a limit, succeeds and at the end of the novel is happy with life, is rich also in ranks, and the clever, educated, hardworking and business uncle leaves an outstanding career though it here - here will be made in privy councilors, and goes in Italy to restore health of the wife. Alexander (whom O. Tabakov brilliantly played in statement) is sincerely amazed: what, from - for such nonsense?... Aduyev`s wife - the senior, nevertheless, is unfortunate: she was told that the husband at it the skeptic, the cynic and in general the cold person. Pyotr Ivanovich loved the wife, but kept it in himself, did not advertize - as a result she is unfortunate and withers. The word it is more important than affairs...

Here in it also the main and sad thought of work is: to people it is not important what you actually - it is important what you tell about yourself what impression you make that others speak about you. To understand a true essence of the person, to judge not by words, and on acts - seldom who is capable.

The second lesson which is born to us by this book is that the feelings should be stated nevertheless sometimes because as my children speak in such cases, telepathists on holiday, you words tell! .
