MOSCOW OF LERMONTOV
“… Moscow is my homeland and this will always be for me; there I was born, there I suffered a lot and was too happy there! “(from Lermontov’s letter to MA Lopukhina).
Mikhail Yurievich Lermontov was born on October 3 (old style) in 1814. In the house of Major-General F.N. Tolya at the Red Gate. October 11, he was baptized in the church of the Three Saints.
In Moscow, the poet’s early youth took place – years of study at the Moscow noble boarding school and university – in the circle of friends. When he was “too happy.”
Here he will come, having received the recognition of his poetic talent after poetry for the death of Pushkin, and will be received in the Moscow living rooms as a worthy successor to his work.
Leaving Moscow forever in the spring of 1841, before leaving for the Caucasus. He will tell F.F. Vigel: “Ah, if I was allowed to leave the service, with what pleasure I settled here forever.” But this was not meant to come true.
“Moscow is not an ordinary big city, which is a thousand; Moscow is not a silent mass of cold stones made up in a symmetrical order … no! she has her own soul, her own life “(Panorama of Moscow). And it consists of particles of the soul of people who lived here and loved this city. Old Moscow buildings store the memory of the great poet.
