Annotation

The content of the first and the only one publishing of Lermontov’s lifetime poems that were published in 1840 is considered. The author is thinking about peculiar world view of the poet, poetic incarnation of his opinions about the world and relations between people, about the difficulties of people’s feelings, the beauty and harmony of the world that were reflected in poet’s lyrics. The poems, which were analyzed, are “A Song about Tsar Ivan Vasilyevish, the Young Oprichnik, and the Valorous Merchant Kalashnikov” “Mtsyri” the poems which form the golden fund of Russian poetry – “Borodino”, “The elegy”, “I, the mother of God, with prayer now’’ In a difficult moment of time’’ “Three palm-trees” and many others. The author of the paragraph is considering the creative way of Lermontov as a non-stopping and rapid development in the process of which the author has already returned to the common themes, motives, images, and enriched them. In the process of literary analysis of Lermontov’s works the memories of contemporaneities and poet’s friends are used, rare investigating works of the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century of D.N. Ovsyaniko-Kulikovski, N. Kotlyarovski, V. Pokrovski, B. Maikov and also the works of outstanding investigators of Lermontov of the XX the beginning XXI century.
