Among the works on wartime, the story “The golden night spent” written by Anatoly Pristavin stands apart: it not only shows the pain and misfortune experienced by the whole country, but also how this misfortune brings people belonging to different nationalities to different cultures. Retelling
A. Pristavkin exacerbates the impact on the reader by telling the story of two boys. This is a brief summary. “Sleeping over the golden cloud” depicts how the war led two orphans to the southern village of the Caucasus Waters. Sasha and Kolya Kuzminykh, Kuzmenshey, as they are called, brought the teacher of the orphanage Regina Petrovna. But here, in the blessed land, there is no peace and quiet. Local residents are in constant fear: the city is raided by Chechens hiding in the mountains. By decision of the authorities, they were exiled to faraway Siberia, but they managed to escape to the mountains and forests.
Meeting with cruelty
The first clash with hatred and cruelty is told both by the story of Pristavkin, and also by its brief content. “The golden cloud slept” narrates how once the house of Regina Petrovna was burned. Children from the orphanage worked together with adults at the plant. They were driven by a car driver Vera. But it also dies at the hands of fugitive Chechens. One day Kolya and Sasha returned with Demyan from the subsidiary farm to the boarding school, but found a terrible picture: the house was destroyed
Optimism of the tragic finale
The finale of the story is very important and life-affirming. The soldier accidentally finds two sleeping homeless boys. One of them is Kolya Kuzmin, the second is a Chechen boy. Also an orphan, Alkhuzur found warm and sympathetic in Kolya. The boys called themselves Sasha and Kolya Kuzmin. The touching end of the story says that it is not nationality that separates people. Evil is born of criminals, from wherever they come: from fascist Germany or from the Caucasus Mountains. Do not stop by reading the summary. “Sleeping a cloud golden” of the great writer Anatoly Pristavkin deserves to take his place in your library.
