Galina Lebedeva: biography, creativity, career, personal life

Children and school years

 Galina Vladimirovna Lebedeva was born in Moscow in 1938.

Interest in literary creativity began to show from childhood. The formation of her artistic taste was facilitated by the family’s move abroad — to Finland. Her father was an embassy worker. Her mother taught her and her son Slavik to read and write. That’s when she discovered her daughter’s literary abilities. She made sure her daughter improved creative skills on a daily basis. Besides music, singing, dancing, children had etiquette lessons. When the parents returned to Moscow, in grade 4, the daughter started having problems with math. And later exact sciences she was given with difficulty. But the imagination developed was wonderful. In school understood how she writes works well, recites, and recorded in the literary circle. Famous writers Agnia Barto and Samuel Marshak were engaged with the children.

Beginning her creative career

By the time she entered the Literary Institute, she had an entire album of publications. Her father followed her successes in children’s periodical printing. The competition had about 60 people per seat. She knew well German, showed translations from Heine, her then beloved poet. The practice she took place in the magazine “Merry Pictures”. When Masha’s eldest daughter was born, her mother’s creative heyday began.

Tales of the girl Masha

The prototype of the tale about Masha was her first daughter. A cartoon was created by the tale. And then it was translated into 50 languages of the world.

When her grandchildren began to grow up, Galina began to write New Year scripts, conducted classes in the choir studio “Vesnyanka”, where she took them.

The writer made up a story about how Masha didn’t want to delve into domestic problems and how her mood changed. The girl got into the house to the family of ravens. It was very messy here. Birds forced her to clean up, cook food and babysit with crowns. Masha really wanted home. In this, she was helped by a spider and a bat. The story ends safely. The girl is happy to return She realized that it was necessary to learn everything, including housework.

 Subsequently, G. Lebedeva were written works:

Connoisseur of children’s soul

G. Lebedeva feels the children’s desires, the children’s mood. She understands the child’s dreams of a car, the simple and natural desire for a gift and the introduction of a boy as she and a friend will get into it and go in the long haul.

Even such poems, which speak of a religious worldview, are available to children. Here’s the protagonist walking in winter along a barely visible path to the church on the hill. Everything shines in there. The views of saints are strict. Looking at them, people believe in the best. And the child can feel through eternity the warmth in the eyes of God.

The poet senses the condition of the child when a thunderstorm goes. To have a child reduced fear, she describes it figuratively. And at the end the final word is that people are in the house and he will save them. But simple, soulful poems about the Christmas tree, which was brought home, put, and it closely, there is no space. Interesting the description of toys as living things.

Reading the poems of G. Lebedevoy infects optimism. Speaking on behalf of the child, she feels his condition. After all, you always want your dad to be stronger than anyone, so he can carry his mom in his arms. Childhood desire to become in the future is just as natural.

She writes about a fun ride from a slide she made themselves, about a tree that is planted by a girl and forgotten by her. But help has come — the boy will look after him so that he gets higher and higher. Even how sparrows feed is written simultaneously and soulfully, impressionably and at the same time unobtrusively instructive. Sparrows were flying on a piece of bread that the child had thrown. The situation about how sparrows squabble over feed and then put up is simple but instructive. After all, even birds, calling a man a miracle, know that it is necessary to protect bread, and bird-parents teach this bird-children.

Family creativity The

youngest daughter of G. Lebedeva Ekaterina worked for VGTRK and started talking about her mother in programs, and then to make audio tapes. Then attracted the parent to voice her and other works. Soon the play “Adventures of the Cucumber Horse” was created, where actors took part:

Children’s roles were played by Galina’s granddaughters — Zoya and Anya, and she herself is Belku. The producer was Catherine’s husband. So creative work became a family affair. Daughter Catherine confesses that she loves the fairy tale “Cucumber Horse”, because it was dedicated to her. The daughter continues to drive through schools and promote her mother’s books. She understands that the ideological theme of her mother’s works is related to the notion of a full, happy family based on caring attitude towards each other.

Out of private life

met Galina with her future husband, a graduate of the naval school, when she filed her papers. When they wrote the essay, he told her whom to compare Mayakovsky with and whom his poems later influenced. Husband and wife they became in his second year when he was 19 and she was 18.

Galina Lebedeva died in 2014.

One of the last books not published during her lifetime is “Kolkino Summer”. Daughter Catherine did everything to publish it after the death of her mother. These are stories of how a boy spends his summer in the village at his grandparents, and those teach him everything they know. The prototype of the main character was the great grandson of the writer – Nikolay, and his girlfriend Polinka – the niece of the writer.

Opinion of readers

People buy, take in libraries works of G. Lebedeva and are filled with great impressions. Readers believe these warm and sunny narratives are filled with kindness and love. The expression “read to holes” is often used.

Getting to know the real world of insects by verse… wouldn’t it seem strange? Not if you tell a child that in the book, animals all happen like humans. It is known that falling asleep to a child is often difficult task. You can hear from him — how boring it is to go to bed. After reading Masha’s adventures and really should reconcile with your bed and sleep sweetly. Even adults are happy to return to childhood together with children, get away from everyday problems.
