In the darkness of millennia, in pagan times beganto develop fairy tales. Depending on the talent of the narrator, additional adventures of heroes were added to them, or, on the contrary, the excess was cut off. Each fairy tale had a lot of options. But the main thing is that she taught that for a good person everything will end with good. Each fairy tale had its own morals. Tales were not recorded until the middle of the 18th century. Scientific fascination with Russian folklore began in the 19th century.
Following our genius, these words could be repeatedA. N. Tolstoy. Russian children, like all the children of his generation, were close to Russian fairy tales. Being already a famous writer, he repeatedly turned to folklore. He in his youth published a collection of "Sorochi Skazki", then there were "Mermaid Tales", and only then the writer literally processed forty-three Russian fairy tales. Today we will consider the folk tale "The Sister Alenushka and the Brother Ivanushka" (summary). The author for people of our time is not the people, but AN Tolstoy, because in its processing she speaks with us in our language, without using obsolete words and expressions. Her plot is extremely compressed, and the moral is clear to the smallest listeners.
Alexey Tolstoy (1883-1945) was born inNikolayevsk in the family of the Count, the leader of the uyezd nobility. His childhood and how he began to study at home, the master of words described in a remarkable story "Childhood of Nikita." There is also his mother Alexandra Leontievna. The teenager graduates from the school in Samara, and then begins to study at the St. Petersburg Institute of Technology. Realizing that his vocation is literature, he leaves his studies and begins to print a little. At first it was poetry, then Alexei Tolstoy drew attention to prose.
During World War I he sends to the reararticles from the front life. After the revolution, he went abroad for a long time. Living in Paris and Berlin, the writer yearns for home. At the petition of AM Gorky, he is allowed to return home. He is actively working on major fascinating novels, which are the pride of our prose. But even at this time he manages to process Russian fairy tales. One of them, which our Russian artists loved, we will now consider a brief summary. "Sister Alenushka and Brother Ivanushka" - a short story, but instructive.
The parents of Alyonushka and Ivanushka died. The little sister was almost a girl, and the brother is still very small. The girl went to work and took the brother with her. We began to tell a short story ("Sister Alenushka and Brother Ivanushka") of a fairy tale story. They go a long way under the hot sun. Ivanushka wanted to drink. He wanted to drink some water from the trail from the cow's hoof, and then from the horse's trail. But the sister explained that he would become a calf or foal.
She married a merchant girl, and they became amicablelive together. One day the merchant left for business, and a witch approached the window of Alyonushka and tenderly began to call her to swim. Alenushka, not feeling anything wrong, followed her. Here is another morality. You can not walk neither large nor small for strangers, because the witch led Alyonushka to the river and drowned. And she turned into a red girl, dressed in her dress, and even the merchant did not recognize the substitution. One kid knew everything. He became sad, stopped eating and drinking and started running to the beach, calling his sister back.
Kozlenochek took time off before his death on the bank andbegan to complain to her sister that soon they would kill him and cook the meat. Alyonushka replies that she can not swim, because the stones are heavy to her, the grass of her leg is tangled and the sand heavy fell on her chest. The merchant's servant heard this conversation, ran home, told his master everything. Good people came with nets and dragged Alenushka ashore. In the key water she was dipped, and Alyonushka became even more beautiful.
The instructive and entertaining work "The Sister Alenushka and the Brother Ivanushka" ends so well, the short content of which we told and explained.
