brief analysis of works of Bunin's "Cursed Days"
Ivan in his work expressed his attitude to the revolution - a sharply negative.In the strict sense "Cursed Days" Bunin - it's not even a diary, since records were recovered from memory writer artistically processed.How to break the historical time was perceived by them to the Bolshevik coup.Bunin felt the last, who can feel the past of their grandfathers and fathers.He wanted to push fading, autumn beauty of the former and formlessness, the tragedy of the present time.In his work "Cursed Days" Bunin said that Pushkin woefully low and tends to his head, as though noting again: "Sad is my Russian!".Around a soul, only occasionally lewd women but men.
not only a celebration of the defeat of tyranny and democracy has been a writer for Revolution Hell, but fret irreparable loss and damage of life itself, the victory of formlessness.In addition, the product is colored sadness of separation which will Bunin with his country.Looking for orphaned port of Odessa, the author recalls the departure of a honeymoon, and notes that the offspring can not even imagine that Russia, which once lived by their parents.
the collapse of the Russian Bunin guesses and the end of the world harmony.Only in religion, he sees only consolation.
It is not writer idolized former life.Her faults were sealed in "Suhodol" and "The Village".He showed the same class and progressive degeneration of the nobility.But compared with the horrors of civil war and revolution in the presentation of pre-revolutionary Russia Bunin became almost a model of order and stability.He felt almost biblical prophet, even in the "village" which told the disaster coming and wait for their execution, as well as not impartial chronicler and eyewitness another senseless and merciless Russian revolt, in the words of Pushkin.Bunin saw the horrors of the revolution, the people were seen as retaliation for the oppression during the reign of the Romanov dynasty.And he noted that the Bolsheviks may go to destroy half the population.Therefore, this is a grim Buninskaya blog.
