Creating with Pushkin

Creating with Pushkin

The great Russian poet was a true lover of cats, and adored these graceful animals, carefully watching them. In his literary works are mentioned a lot of real and mystical cats. Many of them were drawn in albums of ladies, on scraps of paper, on baize card-table. Most often, the poet depicted a fat cat sitting with its back to the viewer, with “ears on top” and curly tail. Such cat is drawn, for example, in 1833 in an unfinished draft of a letter to the mother of Natalia Goncharova. The most famous “cat” character in Pushkin – this is definitely a “cat scientist” in this fabulous poem:

There stands a green oak,
Golden Chain on the oak tree:
And day and night the cat scientist
Walks on the chain around.
He goes to the right – the song starts,
Left – the tale starts.
