Tрагическая история мальчика-горца, который был пленён русским генералом. Тот повёз его с собой, но дорогой ребёнок заболел. Монахи близлежащего монастыря пожалели маленького пленника и оставили жить в обители, где и он вырос. Так юный Мцыри оказался обречён на жизнь вдали от отечества и «вдали от солнечного света», которая казалась ему жизнью узника. Мальчик всё время тос ...more

I'll dream, some brother, or some friend,
how, gently, over me he'll bend,
how, tenderly, he'll wipe my brow
clean of death's icy sweat, and how
he'll sing to me in undertone
of that dear country, once my own...
and so I'll sleep- no curse, no groan!


Мцыри translated in English as "The novice" is a tragic and confessional poem that consists of 26 parts (and some say the story was based on a monk's life Lermontov met in Georgia, if that's true this poem becomes even m

Когда я стану умирать,
И, верь, тебе не долго ждать,
Ты перенесть меня вели
В наш сад, в то место, где цвели
Акаций белых два куста...
Трава меж ними так густа,
И свежий воздух так душист,
И так прозрачно-золотист
Играющий на солнце лист!
Там положить вели меня.
Сияньем голубого дня
Упьюся я в последний раз.
Оттуда виден и Кавказ!
Быть может, он с своих высот
Привет прощальный мне пришлет,
Пришлет с прохла

*Read for class.

Please, note, that when I'm giving these stars ratings for classics, I'm only rating my own enjoyment, not the value of the book. Lermontov was, of course, a genius. And I liked his writing style, his verse. I just, personally, didn't enjoy the story too much. I got the nostalgia and lack of freedom, but maybe it's just not something that I've experienced in any way to relate to. Or maybe his writing just didn't get to me.

Люблю.

Мцыри - на грузинском языке значит "неслужащий монах", нечто вроде "послушника". (Прим. Лермонтова)

Большая поклонница произведений Лермонтова.
Мцыри - второе любимое произведение после Демона.
Просто шедевр!

It's a song of freedom, tragic and powerful.

26 stanzas about personal freedom, about being captive and the fights and sufferings we put up for gaining or regaining it. Lermontov gathered material on travels in his beloved Caucasus, for this poem, apparently, in a monastery, with one sole monk left. It's a lovely exhibit on how to express another one's tale, with own emotion and skill.

совсем различное мнение по сравнению с первым прочтением в 8 классе, когда это было не более, чем каким-то непонятным произведением о монахе, желающем сбежать, однако сейчас все абсолютно по-другому, совсем другие эмоции и чувства. я в восторге. захватывает дыхание.

Скажи мне, что средь этих стен
Могли бы дать вы мне взамен
Той дружбы краткой, но живой,
Меж бурным сердцем и грозой?
