“I never tell a lie at heart,
And to the call of ostentation
I’ll say without hesitation:
Farewell to squabble, booze and that”.
A great poet and a big bully, Sergei Yesenin is tightly connected with St. Petersburg. Here the first collection of his poems has been released, here his rapid path to the stunning glory has begun, and here his life has been tragically cut short. He called himself “bawdy and rowdy” and he supported this image in every way. With all that he was well-educated and very talented; Yesenin wrote his first verse at the age of eight.
There were contradictory relations between Yesenin and Mayakovsky – well, of course, it was a couple of intolerant rebels! However, they both recognized giftedness of their “ideological competitor”.
Yesenin was very amorous. From a brief first marriage he had a son, Yuri, who was shot because of a false denunciation; that was just one of the tragedies in the poet’s life. Isadora Duncan – the famous American dancer – has become his second wife. It was a scandalous love story that ended when Yesenin fell in love again and left Isadora. Sophia – the third and last wife of the poet was a dear granddaughter of Leo Tolstoy.
In the “Yesenin” room you can appreciate the pleasant yellow accents in the decor, a thoughtful poet’s gaze on his portrait above the bed… Maybe somewhere nearby, one hundred years ago, Yesenin chanted his brilliant poetry or arranged another scandal in the room like this.
