Fables of Leonardo da Vinci.

name Leonardo da Vinci, often associated with the fine arts - after all, the work of this brilliant artist is rightly considered the epitome of the High Italian Renaissance.For the average man in the street the famous Italian - first author of the famous Mona Lisa smile that has become a household term.

talented person is talented in all

Not everyone knew and knows that Leonardo showed himself to be extraordinarily gifted person in many industries - and was interested in mechanics and anatomy.Genius belongs to a number of ideas, far ahead of his time.

As master dabbled in various guises, there is nothing surprising in the fact that were with him, and literary experiences that brilliant Italian, apparently, was not going to give to the public: many stories and fables of Leonardo da Vinci wrote,for their own pleasure.

feather samples were found only after his death, and then found that really talented person is talented in everything.The works are written in prose brilliant, they are concise, orig

inal and accurate.The author did not imitate predecessors, preferring to find their own means of expression - and always succeeded.

Leonardo da Vinci in the literature

literary genius experiments are very diverse: there are descriptions of nature, and humorous notes, and even artfully constructed puzzle.Very interesting and original fable of Leonardo da Vinci, sometimes called parables images in their bright and unexpected comparisons apt, meaning - deep.The author did not limit their imagination a strange styling (for example, became a devotee of Aesop language).The heroes of fables delight diversity: reflections devotees and people, animals and even inanimate objects.

In his works of the artist (and, as it turned out, fabulist) addressed to a variety of problems: it seems that it is cleverly designed and the findings made during the long reflection, sketch and sudden insights, visiting author.All fables Leonardo da Vinci did not like each other.Heroes situation morality is always different.Sometimes the output is on the surface, sometimes the product allows various interpretations.They are united only undeniable talent and entertaining: read this short parable at least interesting.

To know, you need to be interested in

curriculum Fables of Leonardo da Vinci are not included, but they are often used by the authors of intellectual quizzes.It is understood that the person whose level of education is above average, should be aware of the great Italian literary experience.Well, they of course, cost.

At the heart of almost every fable Leonardo da Vinci - justice.In the name of achieving heroes coming unseemly, are trapped.And even sometimes turn out to be eaten (the hapless rodent in the fable "The mouse and the oyster," trying to devour the mollusc fraud, but instead found himself in the stomach of a cat).

idea of ​​retribution

As a rule, the surviving victims willing to agree that they were punished deserved (the merchant of Leonardo da Vinci's fable about the monks).

essence works as follows: a cunning huckster, recalling two errant members of the clergy that have meat in Lent during Lent is unacceptable (the charter will not allow it), personally dealt with the chicken, which should be divided into three.Wandering monks began to resemble a merchant that travelers are allowed exemptions, and taught an object lesson rascal.

One of them took to transfer the merchant across the river, he conveyed to the middle and threw it into the water - wet and luggage, and shoes and clothing bouncer.He explained his action Jesuit monk: that the charter will not allow it to carry money (and representative of commerce are, of course, were).The moral of the fable about the Leonardo da Vinci monks simple: for all the tricks can follow fair retribution but a manifestation of a trick - turn against the one who uses it.

Trust capable disarm

idea of ​​retaliation, in principle, is not new: such thoughts easily found in other authors.But da Vinci in his work refers to other aspects of life, sometimes quite unexpected.Everybody remembers Krylov's fable "The Wolf and the Lamb", in which the gray predator eats the unfortunate kid, arguing it is simple: "You are to blame for much that I want to eat."

Despite initial alignment characters (predator and prey), is a completely different meaning in the work of Leonardo da Vinci.The fable "The Lion and the Lamb" - short and succinct sketch of a rather unexpected outcome.The author claims that even the most ferocious predator can disarm the trust and naivety.Unlike the wolf Krylov lion da Vinci could not betray the trust the little creature and stayed hungry.

unlikely that the ending of this fable of Leonardo da Vinci can be considered typical or rely on something like that in everyday life: after all, someone's vulnerability can disarm only a very noble heart.However, it is possible that the author is not in vain chose the main character is the product of a lion: and whom to show the greatness of the soul is not itself the king of beasts?

sense of humor

another parable masters show how deep and peculiar sense of humor had a Leonardo da Vinci: the fable "rich and poor", for instance, paints a craftsman, who after a hard working day comes to visitsecured countryman living in luxury.When he finally asked the reason for the frequent (and silent) visits, worker almost mockingly replied that came to admire the environment in which the landlord lives in order to "unburden".He deeply sympathized with the rich man to have nowhere to go for the same purpose, for the poor around the living alone.

meaning of this work is not clear.It is not clear what to say to the readers of Leonardo da Vinci.Fable "rich and poor" calls "take away and divide", according to some revolutionaries Loved Ones?Or just enjoy the wit artisan?It contains a reasonable idea that is much more pleasant to be surrounded by successful people?And maybe, the author is trying to convey to the reader how important it is - to be able to contemplate the beauty?

beauty and goodness - are not identical

value of the aesthetic side of life Da Vinci certainly understand.It is fair to say that he himself was in the creation of beauty took a direct part.However, the tendency to deify the unconditional beauty great artist does not detect: recognizes that it can be consumed on an evil deed.

Witness to this is another famous work of Leonardo da Vinci: the fable "Panther", in which the little monkey admire the magnificent cloth dangerous predator.The mother explains that with the help of lovely spots, similar to the unusual flowers, cunning killer luring gullible victim: thus, beauty is not necessarily a good - sums up the Leonardo da Vinci.Fable "Panther" prompts us to another conclusion: the great master were not alien to ethical reflection.He often refers to morality - and his performance of these concepts is quite Christian.

of Mind and labor

da Vinci More often reflects on the benefits and the greatness of labor, which is not considered humiliating for a man, but necessary.Proof can serve as a fable about the razor, which shone in the sun, and imagines himself to God knows what.Refusing to work in the barber shop (after shave someone's lathered cheeks unworthy of her splendor), she was covered with rust - and bitterly repented, realizing how important life work.Just - further clarifies the author - the human mind without the use of rust.

mind, the fruits of his work in general highly of Leonardo da Vinci: the fable "paper and ink" tells the story that's about it.Stupid piece of paper, trying to preserve its pristine purity, accuses the inkstand that was her fault he was "stained".The defendant reasonably argues that this is not some text and squiggles, and the messages of the mind - and it turns out right.Finding papers on his desk - a yellowed, dusty, no longer suitable for the letters - a man throws a clean sheet, leaving only one - the one with recordings, Recognizing the value of this "message of reason."

Stupidity and Genius incompatible

Apparently, the Italian genius is not only appreciated the mind, but also contempt for manifestations of human stupidity.The work is called "tongue and teeth" ranks as the recent signs of mind and talkative - a sense bears painted by Leonardo da Vinci's fable: first think, then speak.In the parable describes the conflict between the teeth and endlessly ranting language that, despite all the warnings, zavralsya, gape, and was deservedly punished: bit their teeth from his soul.

Since grins Leonardo da Vinci invented the fable, "first think, and then speak" - the motto of chatterbox.Fearing be prikushennym, he finally began to behave decently.

Hollywood "happy ending" invented da Vinci

must say that the happy end, almost all the fables of Leonardo da Vinci: justice triumphs, stupidity, cunning and greed confounded, the lessons are the heroes of the benefit, and so on. D. Apparently, the great master wasvery bright man and he believed in the victory of reason - over the stupidity of the world - over darkness, good - over evil.

Most of his conclusions are quite transparent and accessible to every moral position.Internationally recognized genius "be wise crafty."The moral fables of many distinct and even banal: to work - good.Tricky and wriggle - bad.Think - fine.Greedy - unworthy.

The great Leonardo has something to learn not only to people who have devoted themselves to art.In his life and work will find yourself a favor and vent any person.
