Summer was contrast: to replace the suffocating heat came the coolness of the rains and thunderstorms. But weather forecasters promise that warm weather will return to the capital. Meantime, read the letters and diaries of great writers and make sure — at all times people are equally grumble at the bad weather and enjoy good.

“my Dear mother! Heartily rejoice to see from Your letters that You, thank God, healthy. As for the exam, it will be probably June 24th, and we are now prepared for that meter. The weather here yesterday and today is beautiful; and now sbiraetsya with Papa for a walk. Farewell, dearest mother, and wished You good health and a hearty kiss upon Your pen, I have the honor to remain Your children Mikhail, Fedor, Andrei Dostoevsky”.

a letter 14-year-old Fyodor Dostoevsky and his the brothers sent June 2, 1835, to his mother Maria Feodorovna in estate Gifts, where she went in the spring with younger children. Dostoevsky was preparing to become a mother for the seventh time. The pregnancy was easy, not like the previous one, and so the woman was worried that her husband suspects her of infidelity.

Fedor and Michael at that time was preparing for the exams at the boarding school of Leonty Cermak — heavily involved in history and Russian grammar. It was one of the most prestigious educational institutions of the city, and training cost a lot of money. Boarders, as a rule, lived there the whole week and a weekend spent at home. The future writer was doted upon by the teacher of Russian language, Nikolai Bilovice, who was acquainted with Alexander Pushkin, Vasily Zhukovsky, Nikolai Gogol.

Sending your letter, Dostoevsky did not suspect that will soon be left an orphan. In July, Maria Feodorovna gave birth to a daughter, Alexandra, and since then, her ruined health began to deteriorate. “It was the most bitter time in the children’s time in our lives. And no wonder. We prepared every minute to lose her mother. In short, our family took a complete revolution, concluded by the death of the mother”, later recalled the writer. He is very grieved at the death of his mother. Growing up, immortalized her image in the image of the mother of Arkady Dolgoruky in the Adolescent mother and Alyosha in “the Brothers Karamazov”.

in the Summer of 1850, Ivan Turgenev, already settled abroad, came to Moscow. Was minding my own business, visiting friends, but to call in the Spasskoe-Lutovinovo to his mother Varvara Petrovna was in no hurry — they were in a tense relationship. He did not see the mother in November of the same year she dies. And while the writer enjoyed the summer capital. In late July he was sent to Paris with Pauline Viardot and her husband Louis the following lines:

the Writer is longing for Paris and wanted to go back. In the same letter he complained that no one in Moscow is not even the Times newspaper, he was used to abroad.

In the e��from the arrival in Moscow of Ivan Turgenev met his illegitimate daughter Pelageya (Pauline), as reported by my friends in previous letters. The girl was born at the seamstress, who worked at his mother, with her young Turgenev was a short passionate affair. It turned out that the child took Varvara Petrovna and turned it into a fortress. Servants knew who she was, and tormented, when loading heavy work and ironically calling a “lady”. Turgenev decided to pick up my daughter, and Pauline Viardot, wanting to help, offered to send a small pelage thereto.

“I Write to you from Moscow, tired, weary from the heat and dust. Hastened here to do business as part of the preparations for the printing of “Dead souls” the second volume, and before they are weary, barely able to put pen to write a few lines of notes, and not what to correct or even to rewrite what is rewritten. Much better was to spend the summer at home and not to hurry, but the desire to see you and with Zhukovsky was the cause of my impatience, too,”.

the Recipient of this letter, sent by Nikolai Gogol 15 Jul 1851 — Petr Pletnev, chief editor of the magazine “Sovremennik”. While the poem “Dead souls” writer still planned in three volumes. The first part was published in 1842, the second was never published, and the third Nikolai’t even started, it has only scraps of information.

After the second volume of “Dead souls” was written, Gogol suddenly overcome doubts — the result? They confirmed the priest, whom the writer confessed, saying that the book was almost satanic, this is the one to read. Gogol listened and sent the manuscript into the furnace.

In the letter he complains about the heat and the dust, but cold he didn’t like. For this reason, Nikolai disliked St. Petersburg. The main geographical love of my life, “the soul of Italy,” Gogol was willing to forgive any weather conditions. “Summer is not summer, spring — not the spring, but better spring and summer which are in the other corners of the world,” he wrote in 1838 to his friend Alexander Danilevsky from Rome.

“a Summer evening in June at the beginning of the 5th hour, the corn begins to ear tube — dark green and the grass is the same. Past bushes of grass and low oak bushes all seemed to flicker gray Zverkov, like rabbits. This is the shade of the clouds” such an entry made in the diary 1856 28-year-old Leo Tolstoy.

Around this time, Lieutenant Tolstoy decided to devote himself to writing and to leave military service. Just four years ago there appeared in print his novel “Childhood” and “Adolescence,” and in 1856 published “war stories count L. N. Tolstoy”. In the journal “Sovremennik” published “Sevastopol in August 1855” from “Sevastopol stories” that made him famous.

“After a difficult examination, and as expected, I’m terribly lazy. Lying, smoke and function, and the rest is hard work. It is difficult to write satires. Weather, except for the daily rains, gorgeous… Not to work…”

This is a sad letter received in June, 1884, the writer and journalist Nikolai Leykin, published in St. Petersburg humorous weekly “Fragments”. It was one of those publications, which published his first stories Anton Chekhov — some under the pseudonym Antosha Chekhonte, and some are unsigned.

Anton Pavlovich mentions the exams, then he studied at the medical faculty of Moscow University named after I. M. Sechenov. It was equally important, and studying, and writing, so I try to give them equal time. Patients Chekhov began to take a student, and after graduation he became a district doctor. In the summer of 1884 he was offered the position of head of the hospital in Zvenigorod.

Despite the fact that in the letter, Chekhov complains about the rain, he loved them in Moscow. His contemporaries spoke of how he missed him, being at his dacha in the Crimea.

“the Summer of 1923 in Moscow exclusively(e). Not a day goes by without the pouring rain and sometimes several times. In June there were two famous rainstorm, when the Neglinnaya failed pavement and flooded roadways. Today was something like a shower of large hailstones”.

This recording was made on July 25, 1923, in the diary of Mikhail Bulgakov. The future Creator of the novel “Master and Margarita” did not stint on the compliments this summer: disgusting, cold and rainy. In one of June days dropped nearly a third of the monthly norm of precipitation. Bulgakov wrote what was happening on the streets of Moscow after the floods: from one sidewalk to another you can move with the help of cabs — of course, for a fee. He talked about the men who “rode on each other” and women, “marching with the feet, naked to the limits and beyond these limits.”

“Jumping between Moscow and outside Moscow dacha (tennis in those rare intervals when there is no rain), has achieved persistent and significant deterioration of health. Pleased to��nye friends: at meetings talking about how I don’t look it, affectionately and sympathetically inquired why I was in Moscow, or say that… in the fall I’ll be rich!! (an allusion to the Theater),”

in the Summer of 1926, Mikhail again lucky with the weather. But it could not dampen his joy about the upcoming performance of the play “Days of Turbin,” which the writer ordered the Moscow art academic theater as a dramatization of his novel “the White guard”. In October premiere, but the play was not very happy. Soon Bulgakov exclaims: “the Moscow art theatre — the cemetery of my plays!” — and take up their most funny, angry and no less infernal than “the Master and Margarita”, the book “the Theatrical novel”.
