Samuil Marshak as a Feuilletonist (According to Materials of "Vseobshchay Gazeta" 1911)
This work is devoted to the study of Samuil Marshak`s early literary life, when he wrote a column «A small feuilleton» in «Vseobshchaya gazeta» in Saint Petersburg under the pseudonym «Yeller». The feuilletons which were published in this periodical edition in 1911, namely the months January, February, March and April, are in my scope of the study. It is crucial to mention that even not all readers could attribute these short stories, which covered the main political and social topics of the day, to Samuil Marshak. The overall goal of my final paper is a republication of the early feuilletons of Marshak, as well as to clarify the social and political events, which gave occasion to the writing of such texts. Moreover, I have paid attention to some literary allusions of these feuilletons. As a result, I made the first approach to the coverage of the topic «Marshak as a feuilletonist», which for a long time remained out of the fields of historical and literary context.
