Occult secrets Pushkin

The whole life of the poet imbued strange coincidences, prophecy, mystical signs. Do not take this into account is simply impossible, especially since the untimely death of Pushkin and the result of these predictions.

The role of the obsessive fears in the life of the poet

We know that many people of creative professions have a high sensitivity to detail and strange behavior. Was no exception, and Alexander, the extreme vulnerability and emotions which were the source of much of his poetic talent. But this kind of psychological traits of the poet could not be fully realized in his poetry. Excess mental stress than once spawned various conflicts in the life of the poet. This could be dangerous for him, which eventually happened. I must admit that much of his boundless energy was directed at certain key points in his mind, today called phobias.

The poet did not like to shake hands, do not bore the number 13, wakes up afraid of salt and fed him during dinner knife. Itching of the right eye, he took as a sign of the expected disaster, and met on the way the funeral profession, on the contrary, as a sign of good luck ambulance. Among other things, Pushkin was an endless list of so-called "unlucky days" list that are not even make sense. In this list, for example, was part of his birthday — May 26, so the poet, in contrast to ordinary people fell that day in the spleen and relatives lamented: "What to do! So I was born to — in the miserable day to be born … "For all that Pushkin was never a coward, that is, outside the situation phobia, on the contrary, showed courage and even a tendency to play it safe …

One biographer of Pushkin, his nephew Leo Pavlishchev, said: "It is strange that, with all his remarkable intellectual development poet attached great importance to certain days and meeting with priests and with rabbits …"

As you know, phobias differ from the natural fears his obsessive and divorced from life character. However, they also have a certain logic. In particular, they have always protected the poet from reckless behavior, as well as allow him to expend his energy on a more deliberate action. So, for example, if it had not succumbed to the influence of another Alexander phobia, then it would be in December 1825 at the Senate Square!

Pushkin's hare

In 1995, in the village of St. Michael was inaugurated monument rabbit are believed who saved the great poet of the prison. The organizers have decided that there is a reason to put a bronze hare on holidays and other days of Pushkin, and in the rest of the time to keep it in stock, so do not be tempted to "black" non-ferrous metals miners …

And the background to this is as follows. In December 1825, when Pushkin was exiled to his family estate village of St. Michael, before he heard of the death of Alexander I and the ongoing unrest in the capital. Assuming that in this situation to his departure from the place of exile no one paid attention, he ordered to lay horses to travel to St. Petersburg to meet with friends, but he was told that his coachman sick delirium tremens. When they found each other and went through the gate, they got to meet the priest of the local church. For Alexander Sergeyevich it was a bad omen, but he went on, albeit with a heavy heart. But then a hare ran across the road, and did it twice, that was too much, so therefore ordered to turn back …

Exactly a week Pushkin by order of Nicholas I returned to St. Petersburg, received from Tsar Nicholas I for free movement within the country. Now the king was quick to ask the poet, that he would have done if was in the capital to the Decembrist uprising, in which Pushkin, doubting nothing, immediately replied, "would join their comrades" … The fate of the poet would, of course, radically changed when he participated in the December uprising. Siberian exile — this is certainly not the best place to compose poetry, but on the other hand, Pushkin would not be a marriage with Natalia Goncharova, and therefore there would be no reason for the duel with Dantes …

"White Horse", "white man" …

When Pushkin was 20, he and his friend visited the salon fashion while fortunetellers Alexandra Kirchhoff. Sage said the young poet that he would soon get the money that he would have made an unexpected proposal that he be glorified and will be sent into exile, and live a long time if a 37-year life will overcome the misery associated with a white head, a white horse, and white man …

The first prediction came true involuntary money by the end of the same day. Back home, Pushkin found on the table in notes envelope and a note. In it his Lyceum friend wrote: "I was waiting, but did not. I return to my old card debt … "Such a quick execution of the first predictions of unusually strongly impressed the poet, the more that a few days later and turned the second. In the theater, he was approached by an acquaintance of his father, General of Cavalry, Alexei Orlov, and offered to serve in the Horse Guards … now had to wait for execution of the third prophecy. All, of course, know that it came true in January 1837 during a duel with Baron Georges d'Anthes. It was this French aristocrat, and was thus "white" (blond), a man who, besides being a lieutenant Cavalry Regiment, wearing a white coat and rode a white horse. But few people know that the poet had previously been about 20 duels! .. We also know that "the sun of Russian poetry" in general clutched the gun at anyone, even the most insignificant matter, especially when his opponent turned out to be a blond. In other words, this prediction is not a phobia for the poet, but rather the contrary — Pushkin actually provoked the prophecy, despite his gloomy character. He even his friends sometimes seen probable killer.

For example, he literally brought down on one of them, writer and translator Andrew Muravyov many hurtful epigrams, thus naprashivayas a duel. Later the poet confessed to friends that way he tempted fate. After all, Ants, according to him, was a "white man" and both "white horse." At another time, for another duel with Count Fyodor Tolstoy, Pushkin behaved surprisingly calmly. Even when he was aiming the enemy, he quietly eating cherries and spitting seeds (in this episode he later reflected in the story "The Shot"). Earl missed, and Pushkin fired in the air, saying to friends: "I know that this will not kill me. He is not fair … "Most of the other failed duel was prevented by his comrades, who were able to make peace between enemies. Nevertheless, in the metropolitan circles on Pushkin was steady buzz as a brawler and bully …

The phenomenon of "Boldin Autumn"

This is a well-known period of maximum creativity of the poet, which began on August 31 and ended at the end of November 1830. The cause of the Pushkin Boldin was not a reference, as in 1825, and the service need associated with the processing of cases of possession of the country, passed Pushkin father. However, the routine procedure was delayed for three months. The reason was a cholera epidemic broke out in the Nizhny Novgorod region, resulting in the entry and exit was imposed strict quarantine, and all trying to get into the infected zone or leave the soldiers returned back.

As the well-known biographer of Pushkin Lotman, the poet came to Boldin in a depressed mood. This was largely due to his loneliness, the time lag relations with the bride and friends. But soon all this receded unprecedented creative inspiration of the poet.

What explains the strongest creative upsurge in Pushkin, who wrote during this time about 30 poems, 5 stories and much more? Modern scholars believe that the activation of reserve capacity of the body of the poet was not connected with anything other than the effects of solar radiation, ie, magnetic storms caused by solar flares. It was 1830, the 11-year cycle, and was the highest year of solar activity. In such years, often emerging epidemics, revolutions and wars, there are well-known invention, compositions. Another cause of creative ferment of the great poet in early October was a coincidence and mutual enhancement peaks of emotional, intellectual and physical rise in line with the popular theory of biorhythms today.
