Spirituality, beauty, harmony - they argue about them andpeople think for thousands of years. The answer has not yet been found. But who can give a verbal definition of what we see and feel? This is trying to explain in the notes of the absurd Tyapushkin Gleb Uspensky ("Straightened"). The summary describes the thinking, how and why this is how we live. And what is man? What is honor and dignity? And how to save them?
In a god-forgotten corner and peopleTeacher unfortunate Tyapushkin. He lives in a cold, crenellated hut, which is drowned with raw firewood. He sleeps on a makeshift bed, hiding behind a ragged sheepskin coat. He has no bedding. But the fleas - please!
Yesterday he was in the city and made sure that lifeeducated society is thoroughly false and hypocritical. This completely killed his exhausted soul. Only on the platform did she come alive, facing life; a huge crowd of recruits quickly, not allowing to say goodbye, pushed into the cars. Everyone was shouting and crying. Young men were torn off roughly and unceremoniously from their familiar life. It's all over. All went to heal the wounds. And now this clash of city pretense and real pain cut the heart of Tyapushkin.
So begins his story Ouspensky. "Straightened" (summaryThe story will consist in a discussion of the meaningexistence) is in the focus of our attention. In his cold, unheated hut Tyapushkin felt even more strangers, and his own troubles and sorrows. Drowning the stove, he finally fell asleep with a sharp sensation of perpetual unhappiness. Even through a dream, he could feel it. Suddenly something good and joy flashed in my sleep. The subconscious of Tyapushkin works continuously, as Ouspensky shows (Straighten). Summarystory allows you to hope for happiness. Tyapushkin's eyes opened, and memories began.
The hero remembered the hot haymaking. A nice village woman stirs up the hay. How harmonious she was! It merged with the sun, and with the breeze that helped her stir, and with hay, and with the expanse of field and sky. And here is another, austere image of a young, sad, self-contained girl. But her grief is not only her own, but as if collected the sorrow of the world, and harmony is also poured in him. It can be found in everything, if you look closely, assures Ouspensky ("straightened"). The summary tells about the highest harmony, which the ancients could both see and embody. And what could be higher and more harmonious than Venus of Milo, which Tyapushkin saw twelve years ago in the Louvre?
He was instructed to watch, look after childrenand to answer their questions, to which the parents themselves could not find a worthy answer. But quite by accident Tyapushkin wandered alone to the Louvre. Gleb Uspensky shows his complete denseness and stupor from the exhibits.Tyapushkin was tired, rustling in his head, and he had nothing to do with anything. And suddenly the joy poured into the soul - he saw Venus the Milo. He was like a blown balloon, like a crumpled glove.And suddenly, as well as why, Tyapushkin did not understand, herose, revived, straightened his back, straightened his shoulders and froze, looking at the eternal harmony, which was full of the whole being of Venus. Gleb Uspensky tells of the wonderful instantaneous transformation of a dull creature into a Man. Not once or twice, Tyapushkin came to the Louvre to understand what was happening to him. Why is he so filled with calm and freshness? But the mystery remained incomprehensible. Only he himself became temporarily a different person, able to see beauty, to feel compassion and be merciful in big and small. This is the story of "Straighten".
Athanasius Fet with the delight of a true poet seesthis sculpture. She inspired him to heartfelt lines. His emotions are very bright and can not be compared to cold rational reasoning about what a person is. Fet simply admires the beauty created by an unknown master. It is filled with pure delight before the perfect harmony, embodied in marble. He finely captures the momentary mood and inspires the reader with the mood from what he saw. Rassudochnost is not his element.
Ouspensky is very different - something likea work of art transforms a person. To what heights of spirit it raises it. The character of Uspensky in fragments recalls the poem Fet, but does not agree with him. He finds androgyny in Venus, if to speak in modern terms. That is, every person, man and woman, will see in it their own, close, moral, sublime.
This is the story of "Straighten." The analysis says that these two different judgments complement each other, although there is controversy between them.
