Wild Dingo Dog or Tale of First Love

2023-09-14T16:26:56+02:00September 14th, 2023|Categories: Library, literary blog, Literary Blogs|

Who among the older generation does not remember the prudent and faithful Filka, the contemplative girl Tanya, and the newcomer boy Kolya? "Wild Dingo Dog, or Tale of First Love" was written at the request of the publisher. The author was supposed to depict school life. Soviet literature always leaned towards finding positive heroes. In the work, we practically do not encounter negative characters. Even the envious girl Zhenya becomes the main character's friend by the end of the novel. And the geography teacher, who portrayed Tanya in a negative light, is only mentioned in passing. The author himself, Fraerman, [...]

2023-07-06T16:05:15+02:00July 6th, 2023|Categories: Library, literary blog, Literary Blogs, Russian language|

Before moving on to the blog topic, I would like to express my gratitude to Vera Bazilevskaya and Anna Burkovskaya for providing the photographs. So, the June literary salon was dedicated to Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev's novella "Asya." This story took place in 1857. After a year of inactivity, I.S. Turgenev took up the pen again. The reason was a scene accidentally observed in the German town of Zinitzke. The writer's attention was drawn to two women: an old woman sitting on the ground floor of a small house, and a girl peering out of the window on the second floor. [...]

Not much happens there. At the moment I do not see any zest, and [...]

Poetry by our readers: Brigitte Merle.

2023-05-25T09:29:20+02:00May 22nd, 2023|Categories: literary blog, Russian language|

Dear friends, As promised, we are pleased to present the works of a regular participant in our literary salon - Brigitte Merle. Russian is not her native language. По пути, покрытому сосновыми иглами, В горящем летнем воздухе, Ты протянул мне белую розу, блестящую и трепещущую в утренней теплоте. Наши шаги упругие и тихие, Часто встречались на пути в святые горы. Теперь наши следы стёрлись, Роза увяла, Воспоминание растворилось в свежем осеннем воздухе. (август 2017) Слушай песнь ветра в глубоком лесу: Влезает в обнажённые кусты, Листья улетают бешенным танцем, Сучья трещат, Изнурённое дерево рухнет. Разбушевавшийся ветер ворчит, мычит, затихает.

«Женщины у родников, в поле, на верандах только и говорили, как Халид выкрал невесту, какую весёлую свадьбу сыграл его отец… А через месяц и девять дней началась война. Они ушли на фронт вместе. Она не вернулась: осталась лежать близ города Будапешта.» (Фазу Алиева «Конь-победитель») 9 мая – великий день не только для нашей страны. Этот день отмечают во многих странах мира. 9 (8) мая 1945 года в Берлине был подписан акт о безоговорочной капитуляции фашисткой Германии. Вторая мировая война не могла не оставить свой след в мировой и отечественной литературе. Кому не известны слова из знаменитой поэмы Александра Твардовского «Василий [...]

Маша колебалась недолго. Предложения было настолько заманчивым, а улыбка Алекса такой обезоруживающей, что противостоять стало сложно. По ступенькам забралась в кабину. Молодой человек занял место за штурвалом. Приказал пристегнуться. Бесшумно заработали лопасти. Машина слегка качнулась и оторвалась от поверхности. Сапфировое небо начало стремительно приближаться. Отель отдалялся. Квадрат бассейна вскоре стал напоминать голубой корунд в обрамлении цитриновой россыпи. Впервые в жизни полёт на вертолёте. От разворачивающейся картины замирала душа. Ах, какая красота! — Смотри, это лазурное зарево, — Алекс показал на светящееся внизу пятно, которое постоянно меняло конфигурацию. — Это рыбы. Днём они в глубине плавают, а ночью собираются на поверхности в одном [...]
