Writer Pyotr Shcheglovitov: biography, books

Petr Sergeevich Scheglovitov is a Russian writer, an intellectual and a hermit. Such is the image of the hero of Russian cinema and director Avdotya Smirnova.

Ancient roots of the surname

The name Shcheglovitov has ancient roots from the Russian nobility. As early as the beginning of the 18th century, Peter the First ordered this name to be assigned to two noble branches: Shaklovitov and Shaklovitov. They merged into one line. But there are records of even more ancient families Shcheglovitov (records of them date back to 1682).

From biography

Biography of the writer Petr Sergeevich Shcheglovitov was formed from several important points. He grew up in a rich family, received a brilliant education and upbringing. Lived in the XIX century, then the customs were very strict. Shcheglovitov passionately fell in love with one girl - Sophia Dorn. He fell in love with the whole heart and soul of an enthusiastic romantic. Sophia was religious, educated in rigor and obedience.

Like many romantics, the writer Petr Sergeevich Shcheglovitov was jealous. Learning that Sophia has an admirer, he became very fond of his opponent. In those times, similar problems were often solved with the help of a duel. So he called the young man in love with his rival to a duel.

Shcheglovitov, probably, was a mark and a spoon. It so happened that he killed the rival at this match. But instead of happiness and love, he received grief and loneliness. Sophia Dorn could not appreciate such an act. And although I was in love with a young writer, I could not forgive him for killing a person. This contradicted her ethical and religious convictions.

The girl went to the monastery and stayed there until the end of her days in order to pray for the grievous sin of Petr Sergeevich, whose involuntary participant she turned out to be.

Petr Sergeevich, having lost his dyubov, decides to go forever to the estate belonging to his family. He settles down there and is engaged in writing. Until the end of his days he remembered and loved only one girl - Sophia Dorn, never married. And in the estate of the hero later founded a museum.

Such a writer is represented to us, whose books are little known. His works "The Diary of a Fisherman", "Two Days" and others are mentioned in the film Avdotya Smirnova. But to find them is really difficult.

"Two days"

Do not rush into a bookstore or search the Internet for the above works. And all because the writer Peter S. Shcheglovitov - a fictional character. Therefore, it's not that his books are not found on the Internet. It was invented by the authors of the script and the director of the film "Two Days" Avdotya Smirnova. The film was conceived as a melodrama with elements of comedy. But in reality the picture turned out to be ambiguous, multilayered and even scandalous.

In the course of the story various facts from the writer's biography come up. Pyotr Shcheglovitov lived in a beautiful estate. It is recreated with scrupulous meticulousness. The house itself, where the writer lived, the park and the avenues with perennial trees and benches. In the film, everything looks very realistic and reliable.

The museum's servants are intellectuals, they are devoted to their work and are afraid of closing the museum with a hundred-year history. In the course of the film, they talk about the writer, adding so many colorful details to the overall picture that the viewer begins to believe in the existence of the writer Shcheglovitov and is unwilling to be ashamed that (for some reason) he did not read any of his books. But the fact is that the writer Petr Sergeevich Scheglovitov "Notes of the Fisherman" and other works did not actually write.

The details are specified: decoration of rooms, decor elements. Even in the garden there are signs with inscriptions explaining where, when and by whom trees seedlings were donated. One of them is a gift from the head of the Masonic lodge! In all, the spirit of Russian culture is hanging: the names of Tolstoy, Chekhov sound.

So what is the film about?

The plot is not only about the writer. The picture shows social problems in Russian society. As along with the patriarchy and romanticism of the intelligentsia, wholly devoted to literary and historical service, there is a power grub and officials ready to crush and break. Power, profit, money-grubbing are confronted with the helplessness and naive faith of the servants of art.

So, the employees of the museum-estate of the writer Shcheglovitov accept within their walls an important official who is able to decide the fate of their museum. In the painting there is also an invisibly "working class" -workers of the plant, who, by proletarian habit, act by extreme measures, achieving their goals.

About multilayeredness

The film is deep. It intertwined many moments of life, in which the viewer recognizes himself, as well as some "power" of the characters. Let's try to consider some "layers".

The biography of the writer Shcheglovitov Petr Sergeevich is presented by the director of the painting in a romantic foreshortening. A touching story with soft colors sets the color background of the whole picture. The Forgotten Corner is shown pastorally, without red shades (without aggression). The people serving the museum are naive, kind, funny and trustful. For pennies, they are ready to defend their ideals and values.

Contrast, hard and decisively, in this elegiac world breaks power - Deputy Minister Drozdov (actor - F. Bondarchuk). As always, the authorities want to take away, destroy and build something new, commercial. The official here is alien, incomprehensible. There is a struggle between the two sides (between good and evil).

The picture is intertwined with the amazing story of the transformation of a formidable superior and his love for the heroine serving the museum (K. Rappoport). She is naive, helpless and completely sincere. A strong man is disarming. In some ways the story resembles the love drama of the writer Petr Sergeevich Shcheglovitov.

And somewhere off-screen - hungry factory workers seize the governor in hostage to achieve their truth. So reality in the movie flows into fiction and vice versa. Within two days, amazing changes occur with the heroes and their destinies.

About Moscow

It is a pity that there was no such person in reality. The writer Shcheglovit Piotr Sergeevich, whose books were advertised by the film "Two Days", in fact never existed. But he was "registered" so vividly, so realistically that one wants to forget about deceit. Not only the manor was created for five, but the characters of the film themselves radiate energy of the literature of the XIX century. The writer himself - Shcheglovitov Petr Sergeevich, biography and details of the interior created a story frame for the whole film.

This is if you do not touch the political background of the film. We were going to talk only about the writer?

And Moscow is shown by the director in contrast. After the green meadows and pastel colors of the Russian outback the capital "screams" with bright purple hues. And red, as is known, the color of aggression. What can I add here ...

And the finale of the film is good, it's worth a look. But google about the writer Shcheglovitov is not worth it, unfortunately.
