Poems and Songs of Vladimir Vysotsky. A Ballad of Fighting.

Commentary to “A Ballad of Hatred”.

This ballad calls to mind the words of the surah “The Pilgrimage”: “Permission to fight is given to those (believers) who are fought against, because they have been wronged; and surely, Allah is able to give them victory.”

The ballad was written in 1975 for the film “The Arrows of Robin Hood”, see commentary to “A Ballad of Time”.
