"Boris Godunov" ("The dramatic narrative, comedy o real trouble Muscovy, o Tsar Boris and Grishka Otrepyev") - a realistic drama by Alexander Pushkin, was established in 1825 during his exile in Mikhailovskoye. In 1869, the value of works by Modest Mussorgsky in the text of the drama was written the opera. Among the later dramatists who were trying to follow in the footsteps of Pushkin, should be especially noted by AK Tolstoy. In his historical trilogy, "Death of Ivan the Terrible" (1865), "Tsar Fyodor Ivanovich" (1868) and "Tsar Boris" (1870), Tolstoy, like repeating the main opposition boyars, led by Belsky, Shuisky, Mstislavsky, rootless upstart - Godunov . History of the works written under the influence of reading the "History of the Russian state," and devoted to the period of the reign of Boris Godunov in 1598 to 1605 and the invasion of Dmitrii I. At a meeting with the king (which ended here), the author read him excerpts from "Boris Godunov." Drama written in imitation of Shakespeare's historical chronicles - mostly in blank verse with some prose scenes. Protekstom served a number of works not only of Russian literature, but also European (post-modern art, the image of Boris is not just a play in Robbe-Grillet). The play was first published (with the censor cuts) in 1831, but staged only in 1866. The reason - assumed unactable works. But the main thing - until 1866 tragedy was banned for reporting on the scene. With censorship exemptions and reductions set for the first time September 17, 1870 at the Mariinsky Theatre Alexandrinsky artists . The tragedy marked a complete departure from Pushkin's romanticism with his heroics for a realistic embodiment of the character. Pushkin used to hearing people's story about the murder of Tsarevich Dmitry on the orders of Boris Godunov, which historically has not been confirmed. The main theme, raised by the tragedy - and the power of people. Pushkin makes absolutely clear definition: any power - there is violence, and therefore evil.
