Life & Times of Gregori Rasputin

( 1 )

Overview

Was Rasputin - whose murder remains one of the great, dark dramas of the twentieth century - an ambitious fraud, a man divinely inspired, or a simple peasant thrust by circumstance into a situation he could never hope to control? This question forms the basis of this colorful, definitive portrait of a man even more fascinating than his legend.

    ... the specter is still living...,

    Don't you see how strange the shadow and specter of Rasputin is still living, at least in our imaginations, up to now.!! <BR/><BR/>The tragedy of the Russian Tsarina, looking for someone with the power to heal her ailing son and successor to the Russian throne was indeed the predominant factor that raised the `terrible monk' from the throes of the slums to the magnificence of the Russian palace. <BR/>Alexandra was not fooling with Rasputin, as widely and wrongly spread. She knew the monk was an artful loquacious, indolent, pleasure loving and more difficult to make him work, but she didn't suspect he was a sheer liar. <BR/>Initially, Rasputin set himself to please the royal court by being obsequious and entertaining reciting funny stories and acts of buffoonery. <BR/><BR/>Greater only than his aversion to the `commoners' of the Russian society- of whom he was one - was his aversion to Jewish communities that mainly represented the reforming tendencies in Russia and had been the real power behind the 1905 unrests, which followed the Russo-Japanese wars. <BR/><BR/>Tsar Nicola II, whose optimism the Tsarina shared, was extravagantly feted as much for Rasputin's magnificent presence at his court and of his influence. <BR/>Totally immersed and absorbed by the illness of their son, the royal couple did not really appreciate the degree of contempt felt by the other princes of `royal blood' combined with sense of inferiority vis-à-vis the newcomer <BR/>This forgave Rasputin his caustic manner and his tendency to bad temper and impolite language and his easy faculty for making enemies had flourished during the last couple of years before 1917 revolution. <BR/><BR/>Rasputin was an inveterate mystic faith healer who never found it temperamentally difficult to anticipate trouble. If his face was sagging with worry, this transpired his senses of doom and gloom. The cult of arrogance practiced by Rasputin affected no one painfully than Alexandra. She trusted his intelligence and treated him as conscientious and hard-working `member of the family'. Any comments to the contrary made by others she described as rude, tactless, disputatious and given to sneering ill-manners.
