As the composition of the novel by Eugene Onegin


Tatyana and Onegin</a>

A novel in the poems of Alexander Sergeevich Pushkin"Eugene Onegin" was published by separate chapters for several years. The author himself called his novel "a collection of motley chapters" and, at the end of the first chapter, admitted that he wrote it without a plan and does not want to correct numerous contradictions.

Nevertheless, the composition of the novel is distinguished by deep thoughtfulness, clarity and logical completeness.

What is the composition of the novel "Eugene Onegin"
The main device in building the composition of the novelIs its mirror symmetry. In the process of development of the story line, the characters seem to change places. At first Tatiana falls in love with Onegin and suffers from unrequited love. Onegin, after receiving a letter from her with confession, gives the girl a rather brutal rebuff. At the same time the author accompanies the heroine, sincerely sympathizing with her. Next comes the duel of Onegin and Lensky - an event that interrupts the love line in order to subsequently present it in a mirror image. At a meeting in St. Petersburg, Tatyana and Onegin change places. Now Eugene wrote her a letter with a confession, now he is ready to fall at the feet of a proud socialite, and Tatiana rejects him. In this situation, the author is next to Onegin. Here you can see the ring structure of the composition, allowing the reader to return to the past and creating an impression of completeness of the novel.

Ring composition of the composition

Ring composition reveals changes,What happened in the characters of the central characters. If Onegin at the beginning of the novel, leaving the upper world, remains a "secular idler", unable to fill his leisure either with reading or with creativity, in the last chapter he appears before the reader as a well-read, thinking man who almost became a poet. In addition, if in the beginning Eugene considers himself to be satiated, tired of life and unable to experience deep feelings, then towards the end he turns into an ardent lover.
Tatyana, becoming a secular lady, remains in her heartThe former naive and sincere village girl. However, now she is proud, reserved, does not give free rein to emotions and will not allow herself to commit reckless acts.

Lyrical digressions

Another important feature of the compositionNovel - the presence of numerous lyrical digressions. In them the author reveals the veil over the history of the novel, characterizes his characters, gives a wide panorama of the cultural life of the capital, and then, by contrast, shows an idyllic picture of village life, paints poetic Central Russian landscapes, talks about rural customs and customs.
All the above compositional methods allowThe author not only set out, in essence, an unpretentious plot, but also to show a broad picture of Russian life, distance himself from the annoying literary canons and, as a result, create a harmonious, integral and complete work.
