According to Gleb Cherepanov, “Vasily Terkin” is a real epic, so Tvardovsky’s poem goes beyond time. The main thing here is the character himself, capable of making the world a better place in difficult times: with a smile, with a kind word – to support, warm the one who is nearby. After all, it is no coincidence that a simple soldier Vasily Terkin became an example of a sense of humor, fearlessness and at the same time human simplicity and modesty.
“The poem really went to the people: its chapters were rewritten and modified, readers massively wrote sequels. The author was not against it at all: the poem became what it was originally conceived. Not an ideology, but a spirit, not complex literature, but folk art. Not a fairy tale, but an epic epic. An epic about a modern hero, in whose place everyone could be, “the theater notes.
