However, many of the poet's acquaintances on the question of what he is - Pushkin, noted the special attractiveness of his bright gray-blue eyes, which in the moments of the poet's enthusiasm for something (whether it was conversation, creativity, attractive woman) burned with a captivating flicker.
- Pushkin, like many poets, was incrediblechangeable in the mood of a person. Sharp transitions from the deepest dejection, depression to flaming passion and inspired spirituality were peculiar to him both in love, and in work, in friendship, in communication with people. An uninteresting interlocutor or topic of conversation made the poet extremely incompetent, boring and even boring, very impolite. But when something appeared that could attract his attention, how Pushkin literally changed before our eyes, showing all the beauty of the artistic word, beautiful manners and courtesy.
