Excursion to the north of the Moscow region, to the Taldom district – to the homeland of M.E. Saltykov-Shchedrin

The remarkable “peasant” poet and prose writer of the 20th century – Sergei Antonovich Klychkov.

If everyone knows about Saltykov-Shchedrin, the second name is not known to many. Sergei Klychkov (Leshenkov) was born in the village of Dubrovka, Tver province (now a part of Taldom district) in the family of a shoemaker. He studied in Moscow, and as a pupil, participated in the revolution of 1905. He was acquainted with Chaikovsky, Gorky, Lunacharsky. After the revolution he lived in the same room with Sergei Yesenin.

In 1927, the struggle against the “Yeseninshchina” was launched. having reflected on the living friends of the dead poet.

The last book of S. Klychkov’s poems «Visiting the Cranes» was published in Moscow in 1930. When the author, through the efforts of propaganda. Had already worn a tag of «the bard of the kulak village» on his neck.

In 1937, Sergei Klychkov was arrested on false charges, October 8, 1937 sentenced to death and the same day was shot. In 1956 he was rehabilitated. A certificate of rehabilitation indicates a false date of death – January 21, 1940 …

Another hero of our trip is Mikhail Evgrafovich Saltykov-Shchedrin. Born in the village of Spas-Ugol (which we’ll visit for sure). He spent his childhood years there, he also visited his homeland later. The places of his childhood were reflected in the ” the Golovlyov Gentlemen” and “Poshekhonsky ballad”. We will visit the museum of the writer and certainly talk about his life and his works, which have not lost their relevance for centuries (already for centuries). Remember at least this: “In all countries, the railways serve for movement, and here, moreover, for theft,” or: “Something was appreciated: either constitution, or the stallate sturgeon with a horse-radish, or someone to rob blind”…

Well, among other things, we will walk in the center of Dmitrov. Visit the Borisoglebsky Monastery and the local history museum in Taldom. An extremely busy day and extremely busy journey are expecting us.
