Sister of Mercy – Baroness Yu.P. Vrevskaya. On the Issue of Creating an Artistic Image

54

Abstract

The article is devoted to Baroness Yu.P. Vrevskaya, who, despite her status and position in society, became a sister of mercy. Russian and European authors dedicated their best works to her. Yu.P. Vrevskaya became a symbol of sacrificial love. The origins of her feat, which are rooted in her "military" childhood and upbringing, are considered; reading the works of Russian classics, in particular, I.S. Turgenev, determined her character, and early widowhood formed a special path – the path of service to one's neighbor. Reflections on the fate of Yu.P. Vrevskaya became the subject of creative discoveries in the artistic world of I.S. Turgenev, served to develop the theme of women's service and women's feat. Special attention is paid to the literary interests of Yu.P. Vrevskaya, her reading of the works of A.S. Pushkin, F.M. Dostoevsky, J. Sand, Cervantes, V. Hugo, Dickens, etc. In the books, Yu.P. Vrevskaya is looking for the meaning of life and role models. The personality and fate of Yu.P. Vrevskaya are considered in the context of historical events – the Caucasian War, the Russian-Turkish War, as well as in the context of social movements – the history of the Red Cross.
