It’s not old, it’s hard to beat

Everyone who reads Soviet literature knows the writer Fadeev (1901–1956). He served as the chairman of the Council of the Soviet Writers Association and participated in the founding ceremony of Beijing as the head of the Soviet cultural delegation. In his masterpieces, the novels “Destruction” and “Youth Guards” were published in the Chinese translation in the 1940s and 1950s.

Fadeev is not only famous for his literary talents, but also for his love. The name of his wife is Grasimova. When they first met, Grasimova was a new literary man who was attracted to the fascinating appearance and halo of Fadeev and married him. Grasimova was thinking about the days of stability and stability, while Fadeyev was so impetuous that he indulged in the affairs and literary creation of “Lapp” (Russian Association of Proletarian Writers) and rarely cared about his wife.

After the two separated in 1932, they still maintained a sincere friendship. In 1937, when Fasimev was facing a disaster, Graciyev spoke to him in front of Stalin. After the divorce, Fadeev fell in love with the Rapp office secretary Liashko, but the latter and her lover, writer Dmitriev, shot the suicide at the hotel to attract social attention. The head of the Soviet National Political Security Bureau, Jagda, personally went to investigate. The name of Fadeev gradually emerged in the investigation, and he almost followed suit. Fortunately, the director of Yageda characterized the death of Liashko as a “mental disorder.” Even so, Fadeev was often attacked by the opposition afterwards. In 1936, Fadeev met with the Soviet drama actor Stepanova, who was on a business trip to France, who was toured the Moscow Art Theatre in Paris.

Stepanova is like a charming flower from another world, which makes the soul of Fadeev. But Stepanova was already a wife at the time, and her husband was the director of the Moscow Art Theatre, Goncharov. She also has a secret lover, the most popular screenwriter Eltman in Moscow. Fadeev and Stepanova put on a fellowship. They are both Far East, Fadeev’s home is in Vladivostok, and Stepanova is born in Temple Street. Fadeev does not want a love for the four corners, he directly proposed to Stepanova. In 1938, Fadeev and Stepanova officially registered to marry.

Earlier, their son Sasha was born. In 1938, Stalin was heavily famed, and he was appointed secretary of the Soviet Writers Association. At this time, Fadeev fell in love with the wife of the novel “Master and Margaret” Bulgakov’s wife Bulgakov. Later, this affair leaked, the Soviet literary world was in vain, and Stepanova was clamoring for a divorce. Fateyev’s status is prominent, and the ugliness of the family is to discredit the party organization.

Therefore, the Central Committee of the CPSU has to intervene and ask him to slash his anger, to sever the affair with Bulgakov, and to expel the party and avoid the association. The clerk’s position is threatening. After Stalin learned that he also ordered him to cut off his personal affair as soon as possible, otherwise he would be punished within the party. This is the convergence of Fadeev. In 1941, the Soviet-German war broke out. As a military journalist, Fadeev went to the front line and fell in love with the poet Aligar. She wrote the famous long poem of the singer heroine Zoya.

After they sneaked, Aligel gave birth to a girl named Martha. The last extramarital affair of Fadeev was his old friend in Vladivostok, a female teacher named Kolesnikova. They are peers, have similar ideas, and are more talkative. Although they do not live in one place, they communicate frequently. They not only write letters, but also remittances and parcels, which shows the deep relationship. At that time, Fadeev was busy writing a few pages to her every day. No one knows if they will meet in the end – their love of letters ended in 1953. When Stalin died that year, everything in the Soviet Union changed. Three years later, Fadeev shot himself. Stepanova endured grief and continued to raise their children.
