How to substantiate your opinion in writing at the EGE? The problem of historic preservation


When writing an essay on the Russian language in the EGE format, it is important to choose an argument to confirm your opinion. For example, the theme is preservation of historical memory. Here you can remember famous personalities. People who contributed to the history of their hometown, village or village.


You can make an argument by reading a brief biography of the personality:

“Zvorygin Leonid Ivanovich is a local historian. Born in c. Daze and still lives there. They have written many books about the history of the Sun district. He’s on a well-deserved rest, but history doesn’t give him peace. In the early 2000s, he planned to restore the Spassk Church, where Vasnetsov brothers served as priests. In 2003, the church was consecrated. During the restoration of the church, an ancient healing Isakovsky spring was found. He was cleaned and ennobled. Now these places are visited even by foreign tourists. Thanks to the initiative of L.I. Zvorygin in 2012, a monument to St. Michael Tikhonitsky, who was born in Osheti was installed in the village.”


One can read another brief biography and think how to use these information:

“Izmestyeva Elizaveta Ivanovna — public figure n. Suna of the Kirov region. She was born into a large peasant family. In her youth she worked as a pig foreman. During the war she traveled to Moscow for construction work. Later she was engaged in creation of creative teams in her native village, headed the district society of disabled people. Under her, the folklore group “Saturbothea” was formed. In inheritance to the township she left a museum. For many years there were conversations both in the newspaper’s editorial office and in the administration about the need to create it. And she just collected folk costumes, antiquity and needlework. In 1996, the museum received official status — historical and local lore. People who worked with her want the museum to be given the name of Elizaveta Ivanovna Izmestyeva.”


Perhaps you will like the following brief biography, which will turn out an excellent argument to confirm your opinion:

“Nazarov Mikhail Alexeyevich is an artist – a native of the distant Bashkir village of Kananikolskoye Since childhood he was trained in rural work. Was a blacksmith, an artisan, a builder of postwar roads. From childhood he painted. He graduated from the Ufe Art and Theatre School and the Art University in Tallinn.
For many years he taught painting at the Ufa Institute of Arts. Z. Ismagilov. His work was not exhibited for a long time. He wrote in the style of primitivism. This has been ambiguously perceived by society. It was only by the 2000s that he began to be invited to exhibitions. He opened up to people as a soul writing artist. On his paintings forever remained images of peasants, houses, objects of rural life of his native village. He painted by memory, because in the village for a long time there were not these peasant houses, horses with carts, men with axes and women with sickles. All of his work was aimed at preserving the history of the village in canvases. He wanted descendants at least through his paintings to imagine what the interesting life in the village was and the beautiful nature around.”
