A man Scattered from the street Bassein is a literary character.
The hero of the children's work of Samuel Yakovlevich Marshak.
This, perhaps, is the brightest image of an absent-minded person in literature, which eventually became a household word.
The hero of the book "This is what is scattered from the streetBasin "- a collective, hyperbolized image of all scattered people. The hero has neither a name nor a surname. His age is unknown. It remains a mystery how he looks: whether he is brunette, he is blond, with a beard, with glasses.
Initially, Marshak selected his hero name with a shoe theme. He could become Kablukov or Bashmakov. Later I decided to give him a surname, consonant with the main quality of the hero - absentmindedness.
In each edition, the artists depict itdifferently. He is not doing anything. It is not known whether he has a job, does he conduct any kind of social activity. The author tells only about the incidents associated with his absent-minded character. In general, Marshak created a charming image of a cute, harmless eccentric. All his eccentricities look like nonsense. The scattered person is surrounded by people laughing at him.
Poem about the Basseyna scattered from the streetCame out in 1930. It was reissued 11 times and is considered the most popular work of Marshak. In 1975, the TO "Ekran" released the eponymous cartoon.
People laugh not evil, but in a kind way, from the heart. Even the character's speech is full of ridiculous reservations. For example, his appeal to the driver of a streetcar sounds like this: "Wagoned, deeply respected! By all means I need to go out. Is it possible to stop the station at the tram? ".
Adventures of the hero
The main story of the work about Rasseyannom from the streetBassein takes place on the train when the hero was traveling from Leningrad to Moscow. He goes to the station on the roof of the tram. Then he sits at the station in the unloaded car and thinks that he has been traveling for two days and can not leave the city of Leningrad.
Stations that are mentioned in the poem are not at all on the Leningrad-Moscow line. Dubna is located in the direction of Leningrad-Helsinki, and Yamskaya in Kursk.
The adventures of the hero begin at home when heDressed for the trip. Instead of a hat he put a frying pan on his head, gloves on his feet. These ridiculous missteps are very amusing for young readers. Marshak so figuratively portrayed the distraction of his character, that this quality fully replaced both the story line and the visual and social portrait of the character. Without any specifics about his appearance and occupation
The prototype of the Absentee appeared in 1926. Then Marshak saved from poverty his friend the poet Piastu and received an advance for a future children's book. But Piast did not know how to write for children, and Marshak wrote for him the book "Lev Petrovich."
The scattered is fully perceived. For over 80 years this character has been a favorite children's character and a common name for all inattentive people.
