Vladimir Vysotsky. The Interrupted Flifht.

Commentary to the poem “I stubbornly aspire to the bottom...”

Here comes to mind Alexander Pushkin’s poem “To V. F. Raevsky” (it is given in the commentary to “The Goner’s Song”).

This is one of the poems where Vladimir Vysotsky wrote about his mission. He concluded it with the words:

One has gone out — that’s no big deal,
But I will come once for your souls!

The poem was written in 1977.
