The story "Emerald" was written by A. I. Kuprin in 1907. The plot of the work is based on the real story of the magnificent Dawn horse, which was destroyed due to the selfish calculations of people. The unusualness of the work lies in the choice of the main character by the author: all events are seen through the eyes of the stallion Emerald. An amazing world opens up before the reader, consisting of vivid images, smells, secret thoughts. This is just a summary. Kuprin's "Emerald" is a wonderful, subtle, dramatic story about the gullibility and defenselessness of animals and the cruelty of the human world.
Description of horses in the stable
Emerald is a four-year-old stallion of silver color and American stock. Together with him in the stables in separate stalls are the young mare Shchegolikha and the stubborn horse Onegin. Emeraldwell built, has excellent he alth and stamina. He is often exhibited in racing competitions at the hippodrome. A young and impatient stallion loves this activity very much. From the hustle and bustle that prevails on the day of the races at the stable, he understands that he has yet to pass another test. Several grooms take care of the horses. They feed the animals, clean, prepare for the races. They are all different. The horses of each of them love in their own way. But they especially like their English master. To our trotter he seems as strong, wise and fearless as he is. About this and much more tells us a brief summary. "Emerald" Kuprin makes the reader sympathize with smart and strong animals - horses.
Emerald is getting ready to run
The race day has arrived. Emerald immediately sensed this by the special mood in the stable. Intuition did not fail him. Soon he was already standing in the street, and the groom Nazar poured water from a bucket on top of him, then trying to wring it out with his callused hand. When the horses were washed and dried, they were put on gray linen blankets with a red border on the sides. The Englishman strictly followed all the preparations at the stable. He was especially meticulously watching how the Emerald was equipped for the races. It was clear that the owner today is betting on his favorite stallion. The summary cannot convey the atmosphere of general excitement and bustle before the races. "Kuprin, "Emerald"" is a request that you should make to a library worker in order to read the work in the original.
The race has begun. There were a lot of horses on the hippodrome that day. They were driven in a circle, stretching before the competition. Suddenly a bell sounded. This was the signal for the start of the race. Emerald, looking back, saw how the Englishman behind him got into a small American carriage and pulled the reins. The young trotter learned all the movements of the owner. He sensitively caught his every gesture. The animal knew what his master wanted from him. Here he loosened the reins a little, and this means that you can give a head start, and the next moment the reins crash hard into your mouth and twist your neck - apparently, it's time to slow down a little to save strength until the finish line.
Among the many horses on the hippodrome, one young black stallion stood out. He was the favorite, people were betting on him. But the Emerald managed to get around him easily, as well as all the other horses. Prize columns quickly fly by before the trotter's eyes, the wind whistles in his ears, the tribune roars… Another moment - and the Emerald is the first to break the control tape at the finish line. He won! People surround him, shouting, pointing fingers at his head, sides and legs. Replicas are heard: “Fake horse!”, “Fraud, deceit!”, “Money back!”. At that moment, the stallion saw his master angry for the first time. After all, he was accused of forging a horse. In our article, only a brief summary is given. "Emerald" by Kuprin is worth reading in full to feel all the confusion and confusion of the horse from human dissatisfaction with his victory.
Death of a stallion
Afterthese races dragged on long boring days. Izumrud was no longer taken to prominence or to races. And one evening the horse was taken out of the stable, taken to the station and transported in a wagon to another place. He was settled in an unfamiliar yard alone, away from other horses. This episode does not end the story of Kuprin "Emerald". The summary does not allow to convey the fullness of the wild feeling of loneliness of a young and frisky stallion. The following is a description of his death. And it was like that. The head of this strange stable for him was a big-headed man with small evil eyes and a black mustache. It seemed that the new owner was indifferent to the Emerald, but the trotter constantly felt an incomprehensible horror next to him. Feelings did not disappoint him. Early one morning a big-headed man came into his stall and poured oats into the trough. The trotter obediently began to eat. The oats had an unusual bittersweet taste. After a few minutes, he felt a strong pain and pain in his stomach. The emerald fell, his body convulsing. The bright light of an approaching lantern hurt his eyes for a moment. The next minute it was all over. The animal no longer felt someone push him in the stomach with a heel.
This is just a summary. "Emerald" by Kuprin, I advise everyone to read in full.
