Who was Pierre? Girl with blue hair, or Thirty-three slaps

Who was Pierre? Girl with blue hair, or Thirty-three slaps "I will beat with a stick, give slaps and slaps. This is a very funny comedy ... " (A. Tolstoy "Pinocchio").

Piero younger 1,111,114. Don Giovanni [/url] Though also comes from folklore. It will take people and such a hero, especially a lyric, but out of nowhere nothing happens.

Ancient heroes could not afford such liberties as to be just sad. They may be philosophers, sages, but in militarily to take life as it is, delving into the meaning of things, not reveling in their emotions.

In the Middle Ages, this type also was not typical, occasionally apparent in the songs of troubadours. But the poetry of the troubadours is closely connected with the knights' castles - and it is not a place for "simpleton" Pierrot.

Piero came later, in Italy, from the common people. Do not confuse it with the Russian Petrushka, although relatives, and even the same name - but different genealogy. Pierrot - introduced by way of a borrowing culture.

 Who was Pierre? Girl with blue hair, or Thirty-three slaps A. Watteau "Pierrot" At first he appeared as an Italian boy Pedrolino. He was clever, resourceful, but often got into a mess, and even then was beaten mercilessly. By the XVII century, this farmer-miller was already more familiar to us, Piero, went into the service of Harlequin, which immediately became a rival - and in the cases and, most importantly, love. Kind of already had a touchingly comic: Wide shirt with jabot, pants, face, sprinkled with flour (professional: either forgot to wash, whether for its pallor and does not notice), a stupid hat on his head.

His master 1,111,118. Harlequin 1,111,119. always lived it - hopeful, nerefleksiruyuschy tipchik, rogue, swindler, and it remains unchanged, and live it forever. But the Harlequin can not exist without Piero and Piero - had a much more complex image, no matter how varied over time, we are constantly confronted with it in real in our lives.

 These types of the carnival from the Italian commedia dell'arte became not only the heroes of numerous works, but also specific, recognizable psycho. By the XIX century, Piero - already finished melancholy, neurotic, loser, miserable and rejected lover, so it appears in the French theater. A similar image was captured in the famous canvas A. Watteau.

 Who was Pierre? Girl with blue hair, or Thirty-three slaps AE Yakovlev "Double Self-Portrait" This image is very fond of romance. True, they Piero sometimes rebels against the status quo, not so much against what is always a bit, as against the banality and the moss of the world. Rebellion itself subsides, the pain remains. Pierrot is not just a clown, he was closer to the aristocratic culture, and overall slenderness remains.

  Rouged my face, moon, pale/Draw the eyebrows and mustache adventure,/Do you hear, Columbine, as my poor heart/pulls, pulls a sad song of his? (A. Block "Puppet Show")

Piero can be seen in the painting by Paul Cezanne Pierrot and Harlequin, the portrait of Vsevolod Meyerhold, the double self-portrait of Alexander Yakovlev (Pierrot and Harlequin in one person - it is a separate issue). There have been productions of Meyerhold and Tairov.

"Pierrot the twentieth century" called Marcel Marceau - the famous French mime. In the poetic cycle of poems by Albert Giraud, Belgian's "Pierrot Lunaire" written by music composer dodekafonistom A. Schoenberg. Well displayed Piero in the movies "Children of Paradise", not to mention the "Mad Pierrot" Godard.

Do not die Piero and poetry: He - a boy, a brave lad,/No shell fruit unripe,/That Piero, Pierrot, Pierrot! (Paul Verlaine).

Deserves a separate discussion Piero Vertinsky. "Russian Pierrot" with a face smeared with whitewash, with a break of eyebrows, with unusual elegiac song - bright decadence in the flesh itself is quite a strong singer. The popularity of the extraordinary in the most difficult times ...

 Who was Pierre? Girl with blue hair, or Thirty-three slaps A. Vertinsky amazing that in a fairy tale by the Italian writer Carlo Collodi "Pinocchio", which was the primary source of "Pinocchio", Piero among the heroes there. Piero A. Tolstoy needed, already in the XX century.

Where is Pierrot now, anyone now? Piero alive now. Not everyone can be in the role of the hero-lover. Harlequin enough, they are all in business, the business they are not bad, and thoughts unnecessary toil not, with Malvinas-Columbine managed without strain.

But Pierre can give lectures at universities or to engage in its immediate occupation - to play on stage, or even sit in the boiler room, popisyvaya some very good lyrics. And he almost always hopelessly in love, even if it is a girl with blue hair, "crybaby and teased. He's in love with his image, and allows you to sing, and to suffer:

  And he gave her roses, bought her perfume,
Devoted most of her songs, read her poems ...

Or ridiculous and barely audible to try to say the most important favorite: Pierrot in the form of Malvina began to mumble words - so incoherent and stupid that we do not give here. ("Pinocchio").

 Who was Pierre? Girl with blue hair, or Thirty-three slaps P. Cezanne Pierrot and Harlequin, Pierrot lives So: when in dreams, when in a melancholy, when, and to some enthusiasm. And you can not even get rid of him Harlequin. And how getting away from life itself, seething, boiling, giving slaps careless? Only in dreams and experiences, not necessarily exalted, but necessarily in the lyric.

And he does not as weak as many may think. Pierrot - a strong personality: but you try to live for several centuries, from unrequited love, but still getting endless cuffs! Pierrot - not a pacifist, just in his own life Puppet role for it is not given a stick or club. But he not only suffers, he often builds up.

 But even without Harlequin difficult for him. It can not all the same, this pair of long separated:

- And you will no longer fight?
- Well, no, I have only just begun.
