    A poem central to Lermontov´s destiny, still it is of general importance to those who feel uncomfortable with the social order to which one is bound. Being a chevalier of imperial cavalry Lermontov wanted all the privilegies including being surrouded by adoring women. But serving imperial power in wars aiming at conquering caucasian tribes and dukedoms - no thanks!
