Fables, pamphlets and epigrams of Russian classics

Humor, satire can be found in the works of many classics.There are funny poems addressed to children, and there are those that are intended for adults. One of the most popular genres of humorous poetic works is fable. Epigram, pamphlet, ditty, song and aphorism - they are also respected and loved by fans of poetry.

Fable

Ivan Krylov is rightfully considered a classic of this genre in Russian literature. He ridiculed a variety of human vices: stupidity, vanity, envy, etc. Let us recall at least his "Two Dogs":

Fabulist

Yard, faithful dog watchdog,
Which lordly diligently did service,
I saw my old acquaintance,
Juju, curly lapdog,
On a soft down pillow, on the window.
People go to her, as if to relatives,
He almost cries with emotion,
And under the window
Squeals, wags his tail
And jumps ...

By the way, many funny stories were told about Krylov himself, and this is not accidental: “Grandpa Krylov” had a wonderful sense of humor, could find something funny in any situation and comment on it so that people around her laughed to tears.

Kozma Prutkov was also considered to be a master of humor, under whose name Alexei Tolstoy, the Zhemchuzhnikov brothers and some other poets wrote in the 50s-60s of the 19th century.

Collective pseudonym

Many fables of Kozma Prutkov are very laconic, for example, “The Shepherd, Milk and the Reader”:

Reader! Did he come across you?

By the way, Kozma Prutkov is also known as the author of many aphorisms, for example:.

Epigram

Such ridiculous verses as epigrams were very popular in the 19th century. They were written by Delvig, Vyazemsky, Baratynsky and others. Alexander Pushkin succeeded in this genre, creating accurate epigrams for officials and also mediocre writers:

great poet

Pushkin's caustic epigrams are found both as independent poems and as parts of his works. His epigrams were combined with many genres: fable, parable, parody, madrigal, so there are many varieties of his “funny poems”. The poet was not afraid to direct the arrow of satire even on the ruling persons, for example, on Alexander I.

At the same time, Pushkin loved to joke and kindly. He is the author of the so-called "mischievous poems", which sometimes contain naturalistic scenes, even profanity. Anticipating possible attacks, in one of the works he said:

Pamphlet

Funny poems, which also belong to the category of "mischievous", wrote Lermontov, Esenin, Mayakovsky and other poets.

short biography

But above all, their satire had a social orientation. Remember Mayakovsky - "About rubbish":

Glory. Glory, Glory to the heroes !!!

However,
them
pretty paid tribute.
Now
let's talk
about rubbish.

Calm the storms of the revolutionary heart.
The Soviet hodgepodge was covered with mud.
And got out
because of the back of the RSFSR
mug
tradesman ...

Song

And how much sparkling humor in the works of Vladimir Vysotsky! That's really funny poems! Take at least the "Sacrifice of Television":

Poet and musician

There is a TV - give the podium, -
So prooru - will be spread for miles!
He is not a window, I will not spit out the window, -
I felt like the door to the whole world was cut through.
Everything at home is the most complete overview:
Rest in the Crimea, hurricane and Kobzon,
The film, the seventh part - here you can eat:
I have not seen the previous six.

Or his famous “Listen, Zin!”:

Oh, Wan! Look, what clowns!
Mouth - even stitches sew!
And how well, Wan, painted.
And a voice like drunks.
And he looks like, no, really, Wan,
On brother-in-law - so well drunk!
No, no, you look, no, no,
You look, I really, Wan!

At the same time, in Vysotsky's poetry, with humor, one often guesses both sadness and heartache about the imperfection of society, those or other qualities of people.

Modern poets about humor

Famous contemporary poets like humor, for example, Yevgeny Yevtushenko, like humor. One of his poems is called “Humor”:

Reading poems on stage

Kings
kings
emperors,
rulers of the whole earth
commanded the parades
but with humor -
could not.
In the palaces of famous people
all the days of reclining are well-groomed
was the tramp Aesop,
and beggars
they looked.
In houses where the hypocrite has inherited
their legs are puny
all vulgarity
Khoja Nasreddin
knocked down
like chess
jokes
Wanted to
humor
buy,
yes only you can not buy it!
