The mystery of the poem "Autumn has come, the flowers have dried up"

"Autumn has come, dried flowers" - one of the mostknown poems about the autumn, which lives in childhood memories of many Russian people. This is not surprising, because its structure is very simple. Such a creation is easy to perceive even for small children: it conjures up primitive images of autumn in their imagination. The verse "Autumn has come, flowers have dried up" are published in children's books on literature and are always written by Pleshcheyev. It is worth noting that poems of the same structure are often found in various children's magazines and poetry books: children can easily learn them by heart, thus training memory and developing artistic taste. In the poem "Autumn has come, dried flowers" there are only laconic forms: the size of a three-legged chorea with alternation of the female and male endings (stress in the first line on the penultimate syllable, and in the second on the latter).

The literary critics have certain doubts about the poem

autumn came the dried flowers
to which I devoted this article. The fact is that this work was not included in any of the collections of works by Alexei Nikolayevich Pleshcheyev. Hence the reasonable question: "Is he the author of the poem?" I will not chew on the soul if I say: "There is a great chance that children have bestowed the glory of the wrong creator." After studying the work of Alexei Nikolaevich Pleshcheyev, I realized that autumn was dull for him at times: he saw only wilting in it. This does not contradict the theme of the poem "Autumn has come, the flowers have dried up." Drawing a conclusion from this observation, it can be argued that there is one reason to think of him as the author of this work.

On the other hand, an unknown poet could intentionallyTo imitate Pleshcheyev's attitude towards the fall, and the simple form of his poems. But to whom and why did you need to do this? Maybe someone really wanted his creation to be read, as many of the works of the famous poet read; or it was an accidental typo in the compilation of a collection of children's literature, in which the first published a poem "Autumn has come, dried flowers." The author is a mystery to me, as I think, and for many others. It is worth paying attention to the content of the poem, which, unlike other works by Pleshcheyev, has a scant semantic focus. Such poems most often belong to inexperienced poets, who tend to imitate the work of more famous authors. Surface perception of the poem by an unsophisticated reader can be the cause of approval. Verse at first glance seems imaginative, simple and beautiful. If, however, the reader pays attention to the emotional content of it, this will give him only a meager and depressive idea of ​​nature.

In his work on this topic, Mikhail Zolotonosovargues that the author of the poem is none other than the writer of the Orthodox textbook on literature. The book was compiled by the inspector of the educational district of Moscow Alexei Baranov and was published in 1885. It was in this collection of Russian literature that the first verse was published: "Autumn has come, flowers have dried up." Based on the opinion of the professional and his own guesses, I recognize the probability of false authorship of this poem. However, there is no reason to believe that there are reliable evidence of who is really the author.
