    «Весна, весна! как воздух чист!..» — одно из самых известных стихотворений Баратынского, представляющее собой великолепный образец русской пейзажной лирики девятнадцатого столетия. В этом произведении поэт приветствует весну, возрождение природы. Происходящие процессы восхищают его, безмерно радуют. Поэтому в стихотворении так часто употребляются восклицательные предложения, поэтому выбран явно восторженный тон. Баратынский поет настоящий гимн приходу весны – торжественный, но в то же время легкий, без излишнего пафоса. Пробуждение природы вызывает и пробуждение души лирического героя. Она журчит вместе с ручьем, возносится в небо словно птица. Весна рождает в ней неизбывную радость, надежду на лучшее. Слияние души с природой позволяет лирическому герою почувствовать восторг от полноты бытия.

    Использование многочисленных глаголов помогает Баратынскому создать пейзаж живой и динамичный: шумят ручьи, летают облака, поет жаворонок, река несет лед. Картина, нарисованная поэтом, полна подробностей, за счет чего в воображении читателя возникает законченный образ весны. Он единый, но показан будто с разных точек зрения. Сначала поэт обращает внимание на небо, затем – на реку, после этого – на жаворонка.

    Любовь к весне нашла отражение не только в стихотворениях Баратынского, но и в некоторых его письмах. В апреле 1815 года он написал матери, что для него великая радость – наблюдать за тем, как весна украшает природу, замечать «несколько пробившихся травинок», вдоволь гулять по сухим улицам Петербурга.

    К сожалению, долгое время творчество Баратынского оставалось недооцененным. Современники считали его талантливым стихотворцем, но неразрывно связывали с пушкинской школой. Поздняя лирика поэта и вовсе оказалась непонятой критиками. При этом Пушкин о Баратынском всегда отзывался положительно. Он считали Евгения Абрамовича мыслящим правильно и независимо, чувствующим сильно и глубоко. Литературоведы второй половины девятнадцатого столетия называли поэта второстепенным, слишком рассудочным автором. Интерес к творчеству Баратынского возродился благодаря русским символистам. Именно они поставили его в один ряд с Тютчевым, признав крупным лириком-философом. Позже дань уважения Евгению Абрамовичу отдал Иосиф Бродский, написавший в 1961 году стихотворение «Памяти Е. А. Баратынского».

    Е. Баратынский «Весна, весна! как воздух чист!..»

    Весна, весна! как воздух чист! 

    Как ясен небосклон! 

    Своей лазурию живой

     Слепит мне очи он. 

     Весна, весна! как высоко 

    На крыльях ветерка, 

    Ласкаясь к солнечным лучам, 

    Летают облака! 

     Шумят ручьи! блестят ручьи! 

    Взревев, река несёт 

    На торжествующем хребте 

    Поднятый ею лёд! 

     Ещё древа обнажены, 

    Но в роще ветхий лист, 

    Как прежде, под моей ногой 

    И шумен и душист. 

     Под солнце самое взвился 

    И в яркой вышине 

    Незримый жавронок поёт 

    Заздравный гимн весне. 

     Что с нею, что с моей душой?

     С ручьём она ручей 

    И с птичкой птичка! с ним журчит, 

    Летает в небе с ней! 

     Зачем так радует её 

    И солнце, и весна! 

    Ликует ли, как дочь стихий,

     На пире их она? 

     Что нужды! счастлив, кто на нём 

    Забвенье мысли пьёт, 

    Кого далёко от неё 

    Он, дивный, унесёт!

    Jefferson’s Daughters: Three Sisters, White and Black, in a Young America by Catherine Kerrison

    Thomas Jefferson had three daughters: Martha and Maria by his wife, Martha Wayles Jefferson, and Harriet by his slave Sally Hemings. In Jefferson’s Daughters, Catherine Kerrison, a scholar of early American and women’s history, recounts the remarkable journey of these three women - and how their struggle to define themselves reflects both the possibilities and the limitations that resulted from the American Revolution.

    Although the three women shared a father, the similarities end there. Martha and Maria received a fine convent school education while they lived with their father during his diplomatic posting in Paris - a hothouse of intellectual ferment whose celebrated salonnières are vividly brought to life in Kerrison’s narrative. Once they returned home, however, the sisters found their options limited by the laws and customs of early America.

    Harriet Hemings followed a different path. She escaped slavery - apparently with the assistance of Jefferson himself. Leaving Monticello behind, she boarded a coach and set off for a decidedly uncertain future.

    For this groundbreaking triple biography, Kerrison has uncovered never-before-published documents written by the Jefferson sisters when they were in their teens, as well as letters written by members of the Jefferson and Hemings families. She has interviewed Hemings family descendants (and, with their cooperation, initiating DNA testing) and searched for possible descendants of Harriet Hemings.

    The eventful lives of Thomas Jefferson’s daughters provide a unique vantage point from which to examine the complicated patrimony of the American Revolution itself. The richly interwoven story of these three strong women and their fight to shape their own destinies sheds new light on the ongoing movement toward human rights in America - and on the personal and political legacy of one of our most controversial Founding Fathers.

    999: The Extraordinary Young Women of the First Official Jewish Transport to Auschwitz by Heather Dune Macadam

    The untold story of some of WW2’s most hidden figures and the heartbreaking tragedy that unites them all. Readers of Born Survivors and A Train Near Magdeburg will devour the tragic tale of the first 999 women in Auschwitz concentration camp. This is the hauntingly resonant true story that everyone should know.

    On March 25, 1942, nearly a thousand young, unmarried Jewish women, many of them teenagers, boarded a train in Poprad, Slovakia. Believing they were going to work in a factory for a few months, they were eager to report for government service and left their parents’ homes wearing their best clothes and confidently waving good-bye. Instead, the young women were sent to Auschwitz. Only a few would survive. Now acclaimed author Heather Dune Macadam reveals their stories, drawing on extensive interviews with survivors, and consulting with historians, witnesses, and relatives of those first deportees to create an important addition to Holocaust literature and women’s history.

    The Feminist Revolution: Second Wave Feminism and the Struggle for Women’s Liberation by Bonnie J. MorrisD.-M. Withers

    The Feminist Revolution offers an overview of women’s struggle for equal rights in the late nineteenth century. Beginning with the auspicious founding of the National Organization for Women in 1966, at a time when women across the world were mobilizing individually and collectively in the fight to assert their independence and establish their rights in society, the book traces a path through history, presenting political campaigns, protests, the formation of women’s publishing houses and groundbreaking magazines, and other events that shaped women’s history. It examines women’s determination to free themselves from definition by male culture, wanting not only to “take back the night” but also to reclaim their bodies, their minds, and their cultural identity. It demonstrates as well that the feminist revolution was enacted by women from all backgrounds, of every color, and of all ages and that it took place in the home, in workplaces, and on the streets of every major town and city. This sweeping overview of the key decades in the feminist revolution also brings together for the first time many of these women’s own stories and unpublished images, which together offer tribute to the daring, humor, and creative spirit of its participants.

    From Fashion to Politics: Hadassah and Jewish American Women in the Post World War II Era by Shirli Brautbar

    Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America, has long wielded power in the halls of American political institutions and in the minds of many Jews in the United States. This book enriches our understanding of both modern Jewish history and American women’s history. Hadassah is important not only for what it tells us about women but also for what it reveals about Jewish history and politics, about Zionism, and about America. In the post World War II era, Hadassah played a significant role in shaping Jewish women’s political action and identity. Widely known for its work in Israel, Hadassah played a central role in shaping the way generations of American Jewish women thought about themselves and about their involvement on the American political scene.

    I’m finally backkk!!

    I know the lately I have posted basically nothing, but with the exam session and other personal problems I didn’t feel like to share my negative thoughts. Now things are different! I’ll try to stay positive!

    Anyway, today I had almost 8 hours of lessons with just 1 hours of break for lunch! Actually I attended the first half of them by my room but for the afternoon I went to the library. I think that’s a change of scenery might help me to focus more! After that I came back home and had dinner. I’ll take the rest of the evening to read.
