The story "Adolescence" of Leo Tolstoy was the second book in the author's pseudo-autobiographical series.
Changes in the soul of Nikolenka after moving to Moscow
As soon as Nikolenka arrived in Moscow, heI felt that not only the world around him has changed, but he himself too. He does not pass the tears of his grandmother, who grieves after the death of his daughter, nor the bitterness of his elder brother Volodya. Nicholas envies his outer beauty, trying to convince himself that appearance does not affect personal happiness in any way. Our hero quarrels with his brother, but finds the strength to forgive him. Nikolenko hides all his thoughts deep in his soul. He believes that he is doomed to loneliness. So described the main character Leo Tolstoy. "Adolescence", a summary of which is given in this article, reflects not only some of the events that took place in the life of the young author at one time, but also his thoughts and thoughts.
Parting with his grandfather Karl Ivanych
Once the brothers found a lead shot and had the imprudence to play with it. This immediately became known to their grandmother.
Experiences and fierce Nicholas
After the French-tutor appeared in the house,everything has changed. Nikolenko's relations with him did not add up. Sometimes he himself did not understand why so much aggression and bitterness is causing this person in him. Once he even hit the tutor. When Volodya tries to find out from him what has happened to him, Nikolenka replies that all of him became instantly disgusting. The next trick of a young boy is an attempt to penetrate his father's portfolio. At the same time, he breaks the key, and immediately everyone becomes aware of this. Nicholas is threatened with rods and locked in a dark closet. With our hero there are convulsions. He is laid on the bed and given the opportunity to get enough sleep. After sleep, Nikolenka rises up healthy. Very clearly described the nervous breakdown of the main character, the author Tolstoy. "Adolescence", the brief content of which allows us to trace the chain of events that led to the emergence of this incomprehensible disease, does not lose its relevance in our days.
Influence of Nekhlyudov's friend on the views of the young Nicholas
Soon Volodya entered the university. Nikolenka sincerely rejoices at this. He remains several months before entering the institution. Our hero studies diligently and is preparing to take exams at the Faculty of Mathematics. He has friends: a student Nekhlyudov and adjutant Dubkov. Nicholas began to talk with Nekhlyudov more often.
In the century before last, Leo Tolstoy wrote"Adolescence." The summary of the work is given in this article. In the main hero, perhaps, many recognize themselves in their youth. Therefore, I recommend reading the work in the original.
