Childhood of a Poet and Biographical Narrative about Pushkin: The Disciple of the Lyceum by Andrey Platonov.

This article examines Andrei Platonov’s play The Disciple of the Lyceum, written in 1947–1948, that was proposed for the children’s theater but never staged. The play is focused on the childhood years of the most important national poet and the article discusses the play in the context of both the festivities of 100th and 150th anniversary of Pushkin’s death and birth. The focus of the analyses is on the multiple meanings of childhood in the creation of the national history narrative, as well as on the meaning and place of this play in Platonov’s creative life.
