'Little Tragedies' appeared when Pushkin realized that his plays would not exist on the stage. It was the autumn of 1830. Dramas from Boldino presented the human fate with reference to different epochs and national characters. The poet decided to expose people's feelings. He resolved to present some real characters not an anonymous crowd. Internal conflicts of a tragedy were very distinct, but the author did not aim at moral assessment and bringing a solution to light. He only showed tragic contradictions. Dramatic studies referred to commonly known myths and norms, but they were presented in a new way. Pushkin's dramatic miniatures contain glittering monologues presenting internal dilemmas of the protagonists and dialogues manifesting their latent needs and thoughts. Innovatory activities of Pushkin, the reformer of the Russian National Theatre, consisted in binding together his features as a dramatist and a theorist of theatre. His theatre combined attributes of extreme realism, exceptional simplicity, and absence of effects and methods of artistic acting.
