«Детский случай» Всеволода Некрасова в памяти свидетеля
"Children's Case" (2008) is the last lifetime book by Vs. N. Nekrasov. The book includes poems from different years, from the earliest (late 1950s - early 1960s) to texts that were completed when the proofreading was already being proofread, and therefore can be perceived as a "service of literary memory", a programmatic gesture. Since the reader perceives the book as an integral work, it seems essential to clarify the features of the history of its creation that influenced its character. The clarifications that make up the subject of the article are based on the memoirs of its authors and materials preserved by E. N. Penskaya. The wife of the poet A. I. Zhuravlev, S. V. Miturich (head of the publishing house "Three Squares") and E. N. Penskaya participated in the compilation of the book. Miturich proposed a structure partially implemented in the publication; Zhuravleva and Penskaya influenced the selection of poems, trying to address the book to the widest possible audience, including children; emphatically "adult" poems were eliminated. The "Children's case" was the fruit of collective work, to the result of which Nekrasov had a difficult attitude.
