“For you in joys of light the wild anxieties of war are funny…”: history of creation, genre features and structure, context of poem of M.Y. Lermontov “Valerik”

Annotation

The history of creating and genre peculiarity of one of the best lyrical-epic works of the poet is considered. The military destiny of lieutenant Tenginsky of M.Y. Lermontov troop brought him to the Caucasian river Valerik and made him a participant of bloody battle and the author of the work in which the main role plays by the antiwar pathos. The lyrical character of Valerik is an author-character in which we can easily know the poet himself and the characters of other works – the dying officer from the poem “Legacy”, Maksim Maksimyich of the novel “Hero of our time”, experienced Caucasian soldier in the essay “Caucasian”. The mastership of M.Y. Lermontov in describing the military household, the attention of the artist to many expressive details of the poetic story about the Valerik battle, deep lyricism and psychologism of the narration are considered. The memories of the contemporaries who knew M.Y. Lermontov in Caucasus and the epistolary heritage of the writer were involved in the investigation.
