Pavel Vasilyev

The only museum in Kazakhstan and the former Soviet Union of the outstanding poet of tragic destiny Pavel Nikolaevich Vasilyev which creativity was included into a treasury of the Russian Soviet literature of the 20th century and in which two cultures such as European and Asian, two nations Kazakh and Russian are connected.

Pavel Vasilyev was fated to live ” on gold, furious, and beautiful earth” only 27 years and to die in ominous 1937, in the blossoming of talent. Original creativity of P. Vasilyev was long 20 years under a ban, and only thanks to the widow of the poet E.A. Vyalova, the publisher I. M. Gronsky, he was rehabilitated, and in 1957 the first posthumous collection of its works was published. The poetic heritage of P. Vasilyev makes more than 200 poems and 14 novels, among which “Salt revolt”, “The song about death of the Cossack army”, “Hristolyubovsky sitсy”.

The history of creation of the P. Vasilyev House museum of begins in 1987 when in the regional local history museum of Potanin the literary department was opened on the basis of which the new museum of literature and art was appeared. On an initiative and the petition of enthusiasts E. A. Vyalova, the literary department was placed in the house of the poet in December, 1990. But havin been constructed in 1866, it was in a critical condition therefore the decision to carry out the reconstruction of the building was made. The ceremonial opening of the House museum and Pavel Vasilyev’s monument (work of the sculptor E. Mergenov and architect K. Mantakhayev), which was established in the yard took place on December the 23rd, 1994 at this day when the poet could be 85 years.

All material about the poet is in the House museum. It is the the onliest place in Kazakhstan and in all former Soviet Union where is a memorial historical and cultural monument on studying of works of the outstanding poet of the XX century. Visitors get acquainted withfamily relics of Vasilyev, among which books, hand-written materials, a knife for paper cutting, the ashtray, a casket belonging to the poet‘s mother Glafira Matveevna, lifetime editions with P. Vasilyev’s autographs and photos. That the little that remained and that else it is possible to find, represents an inherent value.

The citizens of Pavlodar city call with love the House museum in the walls of “the vasilyevsky reserve”. There are literary musicales for fans of poetry, a meeting with famous writers, lithounion meetings of Pavel Vasilyev where along with famous poets and beginners improve the skills.

The significant meaning has research activity of the House museum, promoting work not only P. Vasilyev’s creativity, his poetic surrounding, but also the Kazakhstan writers. Here the movies created and shown such as”Son of a Steppe Scope” about the life and literary activity of I. P. Shukhov, “I wasn’t in this life a barren flower” about N. Titov. There are literary meetings about S. Mukanov, M. Auezov, S. Toraygyrov, I. Dzhansugurov’s creativity and others.

Pavlodar is proud of the outstanding son. The street is called in the honor of P. Vasilyev, his name is appropriated to the regional literary association, the oldest library. In a year of the 20 anniversary of Kazakhstan independence in Pavlodar the square and monument of his name are set. The author of this monument is the Pavlodar sculptor, the member of the Union of artists of Kazakhstan Baymuldin K. K. The unusual pedestal which was made of red granite consists of broken lines and on a plan of the author symbolizes hard and inconsistent time in which P. Vasilyev lived and created. The tendency, a rush, after all he didn’t enter, but “rushed into poetry as flew on the excited horse …. ” is in shape of the poet. Years and decades would pass, generations would be replaced, and the monument to the poet will testify to sincere love and appreciation of the city to the fellow countryman who sang of the edge with sincere filial love.

The name of Pavel Vasilyev, his creativity is known and loved in Russia, his works are translated into many languages of the world, but especially he is dear to Kazakhstan citizens because the destiny and unusually bright and original poetry he united two cultures, two spirituality European and Asian.
