Hello dear friends! Horses are beautiful, strong, fast ... this is so often written about. But there is another side of horse life that it is difficult to remain silent - is exhausted horses, nag ... Come immediately to mind lines from the first Raskolnikov's dream that sees horrible dream about horses slaughtered (here reference to Nekrasov's poem from the cycle "On the weather" (1859), which shows a lean horse crippled. She pulls a huge impact, and suddenly rises because it does not have the strength to go on. musher missing whip and mercilessly beats her in the ribs, legs, even the eyes, and the horse from last forces goes on). However FM Dostoevsky's novel reinforces the tragic situation and depicts a horse that sounded the death. On the one hand the reader understands that this is a symbol of the hero rushing between mercy and violence, good and evil, and the nature of Raskolnikov's dream reveals that tomorrow will be a killer. On the other hand, for the soul takes a brutal scene unjust punishment of being unhappy. Very sobering ...

Hello dear members! How not to recall the well-known in the Greek legend of the Trojan Horse? This is a huge horse made of wood, which hid the Achaean warriors (the Greeks). They besieged Troy and came up as a cunning can penetrate the walls of the city. Trojans suspect nothing and entered the horse in the gate, and at night the Achaeans came out of hiding cunning, let the remaining soldiers battled their enemies and destroyed Troy. This event is not only described in the Greek myths, but in the "Iliad" of Homer about the latter, the tenth year of the war. Homer could not rely on the current epic tradition of the Trojan War and had to reckon with it, since its history with the abduction of Helen of Troy and ending with the capture of a wooden horse and the return of the Achaeans. Since the "Iliad" of Homer is full of fiction and metaphors today Trojan horse is an allegory of any tricks. Can you give examples from the literature, where the term "Trojan horse" is clearly relevant?
Good day, dear members! Why do not you talk not only about the horses in the literature, but also about horses in history. I suggest starting with the famous horse of Alexander the Great - Bucephalus. History has it that Alexander the Great at the age of 10 years (according to Plutarch) was the only person who conquered the wayward 11-year-old horse. This horse offered the Macedonian king Philip II trader from Thessaly Filonik 13 talents (about 340 kg of silver), which was a huge sum in those days. Since nobody could rein obstinate animal was king refused to purchase, but Alexander promised to pay for the horse, if he can not tame it. According to historians, when the littoral areas of Persia Bucephalus was kidnapped, Alexander ordered that he immediately returned to his horse, and otherwise he will destroy all the people. Favorite horse of the king was returned safe and sound, and Alexander with joy even paid a ransom to the kidnappers. What do you think, what are the features of our list were inherent Bucephalus?
Hello dear participants. Today I propose to talk about what it means to the image of the horse for our ancestors. In all countries, the horse was revered as the most intelligent creature. According to the beliefs of ancient Slavs, the horse - a symbol of goodness and happiness; the wisdom of the gods was the people through this animal. The cult of the horse is associated with the worship of the Sun: The Slavs believed that the Give-god (god of the sun) travels across the sky in a wonderful chariot drawn by white Quartet zlatogrivyh horses with golden wings. So our ancestors attributed special power Oberig (from the word "protect") in the form of figures of a horse (head, torso), they were worn on the left shoulder on a chain. Protect yourself in this way, not only peasants, townspeople, but heroes - epic heroes who defended the borders of the Russian land from the invasion of countless enemies. For them, the horse is not simply a talisman, it was their true friend, warning of the danger of their master, - laughs "full head" hooves beats to wake the hero. And what do you know the heroes who have had good horses?
Hello dear members of the project "A poor horse waving hands"! We begin our active communication and collaboration immersion in the world of literature. And the horses in the literature. First of all, let's understand what the real horses differ from the literary. All the matter in the imagery. By the way, what is the image? Literary differently interpret this term, but all agree on the fact that the artistic image - is any phenomenon that creatively re-created by the author in fiction. The image is the result of reflection by the artist of a process, phenomenon. In this artistic image not only reflects, but, above all, summarizes the reality, reveals in a single, transient in perpetuity. The specificity of the artistic image is determined not only by the fact that he comprehends the reality, but the fact that it creates a new, fictional world. So, "artistic image - it is a specific and at the same time a generalized picture of human life, created with the help of fiction and has aesthetic value" (LI Timofeev). If you and I look at the profile of our study, just make sure that, on the one hand, the horse - is quite real cloven-hoofed animals, and on the other - an image that indicates the speed, loyalty, beauty, hard work and a lot more. And what art image horse is most interesting?
