And Quiet Flows the Don or Quietly Flows the Don Тихий Дон, lit. The Quiet Don is 4-volume epic novel by Russian writer Mikhail.
Stepan regularly beats her and there is no love between them. Grigori and Aksinia's romance and elopement raise a feud between her husband and his family. The outcome of this romance is the focus of the plot as well as the impending World and Civil Wars which draw up the best young Cossack men for what will be two of Russia's bloodiest wars.
The action moves to the Austro-Hungarian front , where Grigory ends up saving Stepan's life, but that doesn't end the feud. Grigory, at his father's insistence, takes a wife, Natalya, but still loves Aksinia. The book deals not only with the struggles and suffering of the Cossacks but also the landscape itself, which is vividly brought to life.
There are also many folk songs referenced throughout the novel.
Then it became clear that this putsch, and more importantly, the role of the Cossacks in these events, would not be understood without a Cossack prehistory, and so I began with the description of the life of the Don Cossacks just before the beginning of World War I.
Sholokhov: Seminarii, by F. Abramovic and V. Gura, quoted in Mikhail Aleksandrovich Sholokhov, by L. Grigori Melekhov is reportedly based on two Cossacks from Veshenskaya , Pavel Nazarovich Kudinov and Kharlampii Vasilyevich Yermakov, who were key figures in the anti-Bolshevist struggle of the upper Don.
An investigation in the late s had upheld Sholokhov's authorship of "Silent Don" and the allegations were denounced as malicious slander in Pravda.
