That the inference to which readers should have come to the end of the profile of the "A strong always powerless to blame ...".Not to be unfounded his "wolf and the lamb," Krylov based on historical perspectives, emphasizing that there is the principle of "the darkness of examples."But in the following lines, he said his opposition to the installation: "... we do not write stories."It turns out that a fable - a manifestation of the individual case.A generally accepted postulates that's just such case and checked.

Art features

Krylov's fable "The Wolf and the Lamb" - a work of epic.This can be seen, for example, in such detail: the author's position can be traced clearly from the outset fable.But instead of directly "I" uses Krylov generalized "we."Admission detachment makes it possible to depict the interior of the objective.In general, all the poem is realistic in terms of credibility.Wolf - this is a predator, a lamb - the embodiment of sacrifice.Relations between them, typical of those which exist in the natural environment.However, the wolf is disingenuous.He's going to kill his victim to "legally", ie. E. To legitimize lawlessness.Thus there is a motive of social relations in the fable "The wolf and the lamb."Krylov morality works reveals, revealing the true price of the speeches and actions of a predator.As soon as the wolf showed his hypocrisy, exposing the naked calculation, he dragged the lamb to the wolves.Life is a reasonable, albeit based on a hard, but fair laws - is one thing.And immorality and false reality - it is quite different.And it criticizes the immorality of the great fabulist.
