Example text

Ostrovsky as the chorus to a children’s song for peace; here, it was described as a text written on a child’s drawing (a gloss that had not been provided by Chukovsky). ), it became hugely popular, yet the piece, seen as heralding a new era of children’s creativity, was, in fact, thoroughly conventional in terms of its sentiments. One only needs to alter ‘mama’ to ‘Stalin’ to have a poem that might well have been published fifteen years earlier. Yet the perception that children’s happiness now had different causes (‘nature’ and ‘mama’, not the fiat of a political leader) was significant.

The structure itself of Zabolotskii’s work reproduces the ‘sensible peasant conversation’, so beloved in kolkhoz poetry, about the soul and God (the character Nikita Morgunok in ‘The Land of Muravia’ would discuss just these subjects). This conversation goes on, as usual, at a school, where the pupils are asleep. Also present are a backward peasant, a kulak, and a positive hero—the Soldier, who has ‘progressive ideas’. These characters are drawn in a way that is not even so much parodic and satirical as it is ‘overdone’, luboklike.

My parents got signed up, they promised them the moon, but when we arrived… water everywhere, you could only use boats, and it was ex-kulaks living there. They’d done well enough for themselves, of course, they all had two-storey houses…36 Certainly, there are exceptions—such as the memories of wandering round Finnish farms quoted earlier.
