Summary “Pretty Vanyusha you walked a lot”

NA Nekrasov, the poet paid great attention to children: he dedicated his poems to them. In the light came his works such as “Poems dedicated to Russian children” (1867, 1870), “Shkolnik” (1856), “Lamentations of Children” (1860) and many others.
The theme of childhood constantly echoes in the poems of Nekrasov with the theme of Russia and the Russian people. Does Nekrasov remember his own childhood (“On the Volga”), does he reflect on the fate of a peasant boy (“Shkolnik”) – everywhere we see the image of Russia, its past, present and future.
My most favorite poem is the work “Peasant Children”. It, it seems to me, occupies a special place in a series of poems dedicated to children. Immediately it should be noted that “Peasant children” were born in 1861 in the year of abolition of serfdom. Perhaps it is not by chance that Nekrasov writes in the “Year of Hope” about children

– the future of Russia.

Play, children, grow in the wild,
For this you and the red childhood is given.

“Will” is not only liberation from oppression and serfdom, it is also a fusion with nature. It is known that Nekrasov wrote this poem in Greshnev. Here he devotes himself entirely to his favorite pursuits: creativity and hunting. In this period the
poem “Peasant Children” is poem. Initially, the author wanted to name the work “Children’s Comedy”, thus indicating the peculiarity of the genre.
According to the genre, this is a small lyric-epic poem, which reflects the author’s feelings and his personal memories of his own childhood. The basis of the poem is the relationship of Nekrasov and peasant children. Before us there are scenes from the ordinary village life: in these scenes at first sight there is not even a tragic echo.
In general, we can say that the poem externally is an idyll – “a description of peaceful household paintings, the serene life of the peasants.” The essence of the “children’s

comedy” – a poetic reality, impregnated with the game.
NA Nekrasov paid much attention in his poems to the description of nature. So in this work, we can note that at the very beginning the poet describes a sunny, joyful landscape, and then he begins a story about the main characters – 9 children. Each child has his own character: who is observant, who is cautious, and who is also scared. But all the guys with genuine admiration are considering the master and his equipment. Children run away, but soon return.

And you can see not the gentleman: as he was riding from the swamp,
So the series with Gavrila.

As a result, the guys recognize in their hunter – and between them the tension and mistrust disappear. Particularly bright admiration and affection Nekrasov peasant children manifested in the next part of the poem:

Oh dear crooks! Who often saw them,
He, I believe, loves peasant children.

But children will soon become adults – and they will have to choose their own way in this life. And it is in childhood that the prerequisites for this choice are laid.

The worker will lay out, lay out shells –
Planers, podpilki, chisels, knives:
“Look, devil!” And the children are happy,
How you drank, how you make it – show them everything.

In the poem of Nekrasov we see people working – talented, strong and kind.
The main theme of the work – the poetry of rural childhood – is interrupted for a moment:

Enough, Vanyusha! you walked a lot,
It’s time for work, native –
But even labor will turn first
to Vanyusha’s elegant side.

To what Nekrasov correctly noted, that childhood is first of all a game that is a prototype of the future life. That life, which will be filled with labor to “sweat and blood.” The author manages to notice what really stands for the peasant life, more precisely for its serenity and theatrical gaiety:

And the snow, to the windows of the village lying,
And the winter sun cold fire –
Everything, everything real Russian was,
With the stamp of an unrelieved deadening winter.

These lines create a contrast to the pictures of nature that convey the harmony of the world. Interesting and lyrical digression (“Play the same, children! Grow in freedom.”). It returns to the days of the abolition of serfdom. The theme of eternity is also represented here: from childhood, from the game the poet leads us into the future!
The whole poem of NA Nekrasov is imbued with the “charm of the poetry of childhood”, which gives rise to hopes for a better future for Russian children!
