Evening of Pasternak’s Memory and Presentation of a New Book
Peredelkino. In the house-museum of Boris Pasternak took place an evening of his memory.
House number 3 on the street Pavlenko near Moscow writer’s town and after the death of the master of genius remains a place of attraction for thousands of poetry lovers. This is a real cultural center, where excursions, creative evenings, memories, readings, exhibitions, plein airs and foreign languages are held. There are still three elements that are dear to Boris Pasternak’s heart: music, painting, poetry.
But first of all this is the house of the great poet. Favorite corner, a place that helped him survive in the years of brutal persecution and inspired creativity. In it beautiful poems were born, work on translations of works of Shakespeare and other colleagues on a pen was conducted. The last point in the manuscript Doctor Zhivago was placed here. In the spring of 1956, the Polish writer Zemovit Fedecki (Ziemowit Fedecki) will forward the novel to the West, opening the way to world fame.
