Read full description of the books The Little Black Hen:"Black Chicken or Underground Inhabitants" is a book by Anatolii Pogorelskii. This book is probably one of the most sad and touching tales for children in Russian literature, and even though it was written a long time ago in 1829, magical and mysterious plot about a little boy Alex and his favorite black chicken until today conquers hearts of little kids and their parents. The ending of the story is very sad and real that's why this book captures attention of both auditories: little kids and their parents. This book is for kids but not necessarily meant to be read only by children, I guess a lot of adults would find this book very interesting as well because of the way it reflects reality of Russia in the 18 th century.
Read information about the authorRussian: Антоний Погорельский
Real name: Алексей Алексеевич Перовский
Antony Pogorelsky was a Russian prose writer. His remarkable set of stories Dvoinik (The Double, or My Evenings in Little Russia) (1828) was closely related to the German fantastic tradition (Serapion Brothers by Hoffman) and anticipated the famous Evenings on a Farm Near Dikanka by Nikolai Gogol and Russian Nights by Vladimir Odoevsky. In 1829 Pogorelsky published the book that brought him real fame: it was the fairy tale Black Hen, or Living Underground written for his nephew, the first book about childhood in Russian literature. His novel Monastyrka, a “moral-descriptive novel” combining both sentimental and romantic elements was very well accepted by public and critics.
