For what could kill Sergey Yesenin?
last year on TV screens the series " were shown; Yesenin “ as it seemed, the destroyed stereotype of suicide of the great Russian national poet and opened for us absolutely new Sergey Yesenin whose life was bright flash against terrible changes in Russia of the beginning of the 20th century. The prompt and fascinating, sincere and thin movie returns us to Yesenin, “ verses became wings of the Russian soul departing away from a sin, and his death - a bloody wound to all Russian people “.
General impression ambiguous. Questions not only became less, and on the contrary … They became much more. Unpleasant feeling. Only one versions, versions: suicide, murder - plainly nothing is known, the head swells from thoughts. The truth - that where? Why it is hidden from the people?
Personally I incline to the version of murder more. Why? In - the first, it is obviously indicated by certificates of the senior investigator Eduard Hlystalov which, certainly, can be trusted, it is confirmed also by other archival sources. In - the second, words of the actor Sergey Bezrukov who played a role of the poet do not go out of the mind in any way:
“ Yesenin was a light person, I repeat, light. Also do not forget that he was only thirty years old when he died, - how many he created! As for Yesenin`s scandals … is no other than a bright form of a protest against regime of the Bolsheviks spreading “ socialism destroying the personality “ destroying the Russian culture. I see it the person of huge range: from the ingenious hooligan - the mischievous person, Mozart of the era, - to the Russian Hamlet, the first Soviet dissident “ …
That is at that time openly to protest against the Bolshevist mode which over all country spread “ socialism destroying the personality “ besides to be “ first Soviet dissident “ − already it with interest there was enough to pronounce to the poet the death sentence.
Besides, you should not forget about what time was. The twentieth - the thirtieth years − terrible years. Years on which the peak of repressions fell. Who only then was not shot, not sent on GULAG archipelagoes: scientists, commanders, peasants … The turn reached also the creative intellectuals. “ It was lucky “ that who was sent abroad. The fact that the most part of poets left the most national environment was not taken into the account any more. The Soviet power was not content with a spiritual product, it needed the victims, blood streams (we will remember the French revolution!) … And “ last poet of the village “ with its freedom-loving nature, of course, it could not be a happy exception in any way.
Once Yesenin escaped abroad. But returned … And differently could not be! Because the poet was ill Russia, it, only it was his true, inexhaustible love, a header, pervasive subject which did not release in any way. From here, as a result, oppressively - the painful feeling, constant throwings …
And still about suicide cannot go speeches. It is clear. The poet then was on rise, he wrote much, was published … It was loved, eventually! From where here to undertake to desire to commit voluntarily the suicide?
The question of suicide or Sergey Yesenin`s murder remains open still − and from it it is so simple not to wave away. One is still clear. A set of songs on Sergey Yesenin`s verses became really national and for many years ahead. Where there is no indifference, − there is a live feeling. The person living completeness of life, − will not be tired to trust, hope and love.
In conclusion there is a wish to remember words of other remarkable poet − Yevgeny Yevtushenko:
“ Yesenin is, maybe, the most Russian poet because anybody`s other poetry so did not come from a rustle of birches, from soft knock of rain drops about straw roofs of country log huts, from neighing of horses on the obscured morning meadows, from a pobryakivaniye of kolokolets on necks of cows, from rocking of camomiles and cornflowers, from songs on village fences. Yesenin`s verses as if are not written by a feather, and vydyshana the most Russian nature “...
And to these, in my opinion, everything is told. The grave of the poet is one of the most known and visited places of the Vagankovo Cemetery, on it always fresh flowers also today.
