Constantine Paustovsky "Warm bread" conceived ofa small fairy tale, but it contains eternal values. History compels us to empathize, teaches goodness, diligence, respect for our native land. Konstantin Georgievich was very fond of nature. Therefore, in many of his works there are her colorful descriptions. Did Paustov's stories create Warm Bread, "Farewell to the summer", "Hare paws" or a collection of "Golden Rose", all these and other of his works are written in plain language and are saturated with love for their native land.
"Warm bread" begins with a story about a horse,who was wounded by a shell behind the village of Berezhki. The Red Army men did not take the wounded horse, but left it to the miller Pankrat. He left the animal, and the horse did an uncomplicated job-he drove poles, clay, manure.
In the same village lived the boy Filka.He was given the nickname "Come on you" because the child often repeated these words. He spoke, for example, to his grandmother, with whom he lived. These same words were pronounced when a friend suggested that he play, wander on stilts. This is how Konstantin Paustovsky talks about the main characters. "Warm bread" continues the narrative of the weather.
Winter that year was warm, there was almost no snow. However, everything changed radically because of the offense of Fili.
Pankrat could not support his horse, and he began to walkfor eating in the courtyards. Compassionate people endured the horses with the remains of food, so she fed them. Once a horse came to the house of Filka and his grandmothers. The old woman was not at home, her grandson opened and expressed discontent over the appearance of an uninvited guest. However, the horse was hungry. Filka at the same time was holding bread and salt in his hand. He did not feed the horse, but the evil said: "Come on, you!" And hit the horse on the lips for the hungry animal stretching them to the bread. Then the boy threw this piece, saying that the horse was digging its snout in the snow if she needed a hunk. The horse cried. Here such plot was invented by Konstantin Paustovsky. "Warm bread" is unlikely to leave anyone indifferent. After all, these lines can not be read without compassion for the horse.
After that, suddenly a blizzard rose andit got colder. The grandmother who came from her neighbor told me that the wells and the river are now frozen. There will be no water, the mill will not be able to work and grind the bread. She told me that there was such an incident in their village. One soldier on a wooden prosthesis was passing through Berezhki and asked to eat. The owner of the house threw him a moldy crust. The frost that broke out that day was stretched out for a long time, and after that 10 years in the village and around it flowers and trees did not grow. The abuser soon died. Filka was frightened by the story of my grandmother.
However, in the second half of the tale he gives the boychance to correct Paustovsky. "Warm bread" continues with the fact that the child goes to Pankrat at night and proposes to correct the situation. From the severe frost all the water around the mill turned into ice, so it was impossible to grind the flour. The boy said that he would bring his friends, and they all together would strike the ice with axes and scraps to the water. So the guys and the old people did. The mill started working, the landlady baked bread.
KG Paustovsky teaches his good fortune. "Warm bread" ends on a good note. The horse and child reconciled when he brought the animal a whole loaf of warm fresh bread and salt.
