Mikhail Lermontov "Three Palms" wrote in 1838. The work is a poetic parable with a deep philosophical meaning. There are no lyric heroes, the poet revived the very nature, endowed her with the ability to think and feel. Mikhail Yuryevich wrote poetry about the world around him very often. He loved nature and was fond of her, this work is an attempt to reach people's hearts and make them be kinder.
Contents of the poem
Verse of Lermontov's Three Palms tells about threepalms growing in the Arabian desert. Between the trees there is a cold streamlet that has turned a lifeless world into a beautiful oasis, a paradise that at any time of the day and night is ready to shelter a stranger and quench his thirst. All would be nothing, but the palms are bored alone, they want to be useful to someone, and they grow in a place where no one's foot has stepped. Only they turned to God with a request to help them fulfill their destiny, as a caravan of traders appears on the horizon.
Palms with joy meet people, nodding to themshaggy tops, but that does not care about the beauty of the surrounding places. Merchants collected full jugs of cold water, and the trees were chopped to make a fire. Once a blossoming oasis overnight turned into a handful of ashes, which the wind soon dispelled. The caravan left, and in the desert there was only a lonely and defenseless streamlet, drying under the hot rays of the sun and being carried by flying sand.
"Fear your desires - sometimes they come true"
Lermontov "Three Palms" wrote to revealthe nature of the relationship between man and nature. People very rarely appreciate what the world gives them, they are cruel and heartless, they think only of their own profit. Guided by a momentary whim, a person, without hesitation, is able to destroy a fragile planet on which he himself lives. An analysis of Lermontov's poem "Three Palms" shows that the author wanted to make people think about their behavior. Nature can not defend itself, but it is capable of revenge.
From a philosophical point of view, the poem containsreligious topics. The poet is convinced that the Creator can get everything he likes, only if he will satisfy the final result? Everyone has his own destiny, life goes as predicted from above, but if a person refuses to accept this and begs something, then such a rush can lead to fatal consequences - this is what Lermontov warns the reader about.
