The Poem of N. A. Nekrasov "Sasha" in Historical and Literary Context
Though it can be stated that Nekrasov is an acknowledged poet and a number of works on his legacy have been done, Nekrasovs special organization has not been sufficiently studied. The purpose of my investigation is to analyze the poem of Nekrasov “Saša”. This poem was Nekrasovs first experience with the reader in the framework of a large genre. Some features of the poem have already become the object of research in the works of different scholars, but the approach of the existing works on this topic does not correspond to the approach in my investigation. The analysis of “Saša” allows to provide new insights into the principles of Nekrasovs work on the new form in the framework of a large genre. To attain the goal set it is worthwhile, firstly, to examine all the poetic texts of Nekrasov, written before and after the poem, secondly, to study the relation of the poem with the works of the predecessors and contemporaries of Nekrasov.
