Alexander Pushkin became interested in theatre and drama relatively early. His father was keen on the dramatic art, recited Moliere perfectly and in his living room theatre was often talked about in a presence and the future Russian poet. Already in secondary school Pushkin wrote his first theatrical plays and critical theses. At that time the poet's views on drama began to evolve, which can easily be seen in his later plays. Literary experts propose to divide the dramatic legacy of Pushkin into four periods. They are unanimous that the earliest pieces represent the staring point of the poet's creation. The second period is Boris Godunov, the third: 'little tragedies' and the fourth one: the last dramas.
