Abstract

The article studies Dostoevsky’s comment on Pushkin’s poem “The Gypsies” in his Pushkin speech on June 8, 1880 and in some articles. There is an analysis of the distortion of the poem sense – an arbitrary turn from the theme of love in the poem to criticism of the Russian liberals –“Russian Europeans” as detached from the Russian people and so “enemies of the people”. There developed criticism of Dostoevsky’s call to bow to “folk truth” which is “above Pushkin”. The article raise the choice between freedom in love and Dostoevsky’s populism to a level of choice between Pushkin and Dostoevsky as antiPushkin, as a choice of Russia.
