Image of Tsar in Russian Folklore and Modern Image of Head of State in Mass Media and People's Consciousness
Traditional stereotypes can be investigated on the basis of folklore, then historical descriptions, memoirs, memoirs of foreign travelers, etc. We will try to consider only one of these sources - probably the most revealing and which is Russian folklore. We assume that the tsar's folklore image largely reflects the views of modern Russians and is manifested in their political expectations. Therefore, the image of the political leader will be more or less oriented towards such expectations. Try to understand the expectations of the Russian people in the past and in the present, find common ground and track origins.
