Shakespeare was fascinated by political history, the motivations of kings and would-be kings, and the young Pushkin—an early admirer of Byron, the philosophes , and the revolutions in America and France—was fascinated by political history too. When the boy, at the age of ten, was found dead, Godunov was thought responsible. Six years Already have I reigned in peace; but joy Dwells not within my soul.
Even so in youth We greedily desire the joys of love, But only quell the hunger of the heart With momentary possession. We grow cold, Grow weary and oppressed! In vain the wizards Promise me length of days, days of dominion Immune from treachery--not power, not life Gladden me; I forebode the wrath of Heaven And woe. For me no happiness. Now I feel it; naught can give us peace Mid worldly cares, nothing save only conscience! Healthy she triumphs over wickedness, Over dark slander; but if in her be found A single casual stain, then misery. With what a deadly sore my soul doth smart; My heart, with venom filled, doth like a hammer Beat in mine ears reproach; all things revolt me, And my head whirls, and in my eyes are children Dripping with blood; and gladly would I flee, But nowhere can find refuge--horrible!
Pitiful he whose conscience is unclean! When doing the tasks for a literary birthday Challenge I am participating in, I try each month to pick authors I have never read. I wanted to read a bit about Pushkin himself before starting so I visited wiki and while there read a separate link about this play which gave a short outline of the main details leading up to Boris becoming Tsar in the late 's and what went on after that. I When doing the tasks for a literary birthday Challenge I am participating in, I try each month to pick authors I have never read.
I am embarrassed to admit I had not known that Boris Godunov had been a real person. This is a play with only 25 short scenes, but a lot happens throughout. Court intrigue, mysterious deaths, battles, romance, treachery and murder. But was Boris really guilty of causing the death of Ivan the Terrible's youngest but illegitimate son? According to the wiki article, his guilt was never established in real life but Pushkin chose to believe Boris was guilty, in order to add more drama to the play.

He also modeled this work on Shakespeare's Henry IV, which of course I will want to read soon so I can compare the two while Boris is still fresh in my mind. I liked the play; it flowed smoothly from scene to scene, and I was so caught up in the action I found myself holding my breath in more than one spot. This is another work that has shown me that Russian history and literature is not always as intimidating as I have thought. I am looking forward to exploring Russia more thoroughly, and will start with two more works by Pushkin.

The Russian people is depicted as credulous, and wanting vengeance for Dimitri's death; for them, Boris will always be tainted by the blood of the child he murdered. But, when, finally, view spoiler [the false Dimitri succeeds in reaching power, and becomes a tsar, he kills Boris's children, when they are innocent. Fiodor and Xenia, and their mother, die because he is afraid of their power? The people can't celebrate the false Dimitri anymore, because he did exactly what Boris did before I became a tsar: kill the tsarevitch, an innocent and promising boy.
I also learnt maybe things about Russia and its History: I know next to nothing about it, and it's something that I'm really interested in! Between treachery, intrigue, usurpation and hypocrisy, power is coveted, but doesn't always protects. It is written for the Tsar Nikoli I as an apology for his Decemberist friends. It is interesting to note that P was supposed to be in St. Petersberg to support his friends but a black cat had crossed his path so he returned home instead.
Later the Tsar asked P which side he would of been on and the poet answers truthfully; the Tsar then puts himself forward as to act as censor to P in future works. View all 8 comments. Pushkin was a great poet, but, on the evidence of this work, not a great playwright. The work, based on Shakepeare's Macbeth, suffers in comparison. While it is eminently readable, and well-constructed, it lacks variation. Shakespeare knew the value of breaking the narrative with interludes, whether sinister the witches in Macbeth or humorous, as in the case of Falstaff's various appearances in his historical plays.
In contrast, Pushkin doggedly pursues the narrative. Oh well, we can't ALL be Pushkin was a great poet, but, on the evidence of this work, not a great playwright.

Adrian Mitchell's adaption of Alexander Pushkin's "Boris Gudonov" is bright and fresh and a lot less "stodgy" than some translations of Pushkin's tale of 's Russia that he wrote as an allegory of 's Russian politics.
Pushkin drew heavily on Shakespeare for inspiration and there are clear flashes of "Macbeth" and the Histories, notably "Richard III" in the play. As well as livening up the text - and introducing some comic rhyming drunken monks - the main deviation from the original is in Adrian Mitchell's adaption of Alexander Pushkin's "Boris Gudonov" is bright and fresh and a lot less "stodgy" than some translations of Pushkin's tale of 's Russia that he wrote as an allegory of 's Russian politics. As well as livening up the text - and introducing some comic rhyming drunken monks - the main deviation from the original is in one change in scene order which makes logical sense and improves the flow.
As an adaptation it's very strong and is a fitting last project for Mitchell. The play itself though remains fraught with issues. Unlike virtually all Shakespeare plays in my view with the exception of Julius Caesar , it is a play that tends to work better as a read than in production in my view. The story is fascinating though. Boris Gudonov is the Tsar having murdered the young son of Ivan, Dimitry, who would normally have led the country.
However a bright young monk, Grigory, decides to adopt the persona of the murdered young prince, gaining support of the masses and international support to his claim. The problem in production with the play is that, while we are told of Boris's evil nature, whenever he appears on stage with the masses, he's behaving quite well and the advice he gives his own son on ruling is not too bad. Grigory on the other hand is no more than an upstart with high ambitions. Shakespeare, for all his rounded characters, always made the evilness of his villains clear but it's not clear here who we should be siding with.

Mitchell isn't able to solve this fundamental issue with the play, but it is, nevertheless, a strong, modern adaptation of this Russian classic play. I'm sure it lost a lot in translation. Saw it in Stratford - without doubt better performed than read! Read in a book with all of Pushkin's drama snippets. I found them all readable, but mostly too short to be much of anything, and also none of them seem particularly stage-ready.
Mostly they seem to be meant as epic poems just with several characters. Boris Godunow - The Zar, who maybe killed his son, reclaims his throne after being sequestered in a monastery, while a defrocked monk posing as his dead son battles him. Spoilers, the defrocked monk succeeds mostly because the Zar dies of natural ca Read in a book with all of Pushkin's drama snippets. Spoilers, the defrocked monk succeeds mostly because the Zar dies of natural causes on the way.
Is this about karma? Or the fickleness of the people? Who knows. Also reminded me way too much of Boris Badenow Der geizige Ritter - apparently this was kind of about Pushkin's dad. Follows a young broke knight whose dad won't give him money to live on because he's Scrooge McDuck. Ends in death. Mozart and Salieri - Salieri poisons Mozart because Mozart is so talented that he will ruin music forever. It's less than ten pages long. Kind of interesting but also kind of nothing, and Mozart is basically a frat boy.
Der steinerne Gast - Don Juan returns to Madrid despite his banishment to seduce the widow of a guy he murdered. He suceeds but the murdered guy returns as a statue and kills Don Juan. Don Juan is a dick and also sleeps with like three different women under false pretenses.
The statue thing is weird and kind of out of nowhere. A bunch of guys have a feast to celebrate the plague because they can't deal with death, and then the Church comes in and ruins it. Russalka - I want more of this one. It has mythology!!
