My favourite author

My favourite author is Mikhail Yuryevich Lermontov. He is a Russian Romantic writer, poet and painter. Sometimes Lermontov is called "the poet of Caucasus".  He was born in Moscow in 1814.

In February 1829 Lermontov joined the 5th form of the Moscow University's boarding-school. At school he started to read a lot and edit a student journal. Then Lermontov studied at the philological faculty of the Moscow University.

He is famous for his poem Death of the poet. Lermontov wrote about the war of 1812 in Borodino. The main character of it is Kutuzov.

Ivan-tsarevich and the Grey Wolf


"Ivan-tsarevich and the Grey Wolf" is a Russian folk fairytale. There are two variants of this tale. In one of them the tsar Berendey is the main character, in another the tsar Vyslav.


The tsar had three sons. Ivan-tsarevich was the youngest one. Someone was stealing the golden apples in the tsar’s garden.

The tsar wanted his sons to catch the thief. Ivan told his father that it was a Firebird and the tsar ordered his sons to find that mysterious bird. Young men went to the other lands. They were looking for the Firebird everywhere. That was a difficult way full of dangers. The Grey Wolf helped Ivan-tsarevich. It was his loyal and reliable friend.

This fairytale is kind. It learns us to be good and helpful. It shows that the good always triumphs over evil.
