Чтобы обеспечить себе спокойную, мирную жизнь, царь Дадон обратился за помощью к мудрецу-звездочёту. Тот подарил ему волшебного петушка, который зорко следил за царскими владениями и предупреждал о приближении опасности. В свою очередь, царь Дадон пообещал звездочёту исполнить любое его желание.
The Tale of the Golden Cockerel is the last fairy tale in verse by Alexander Pushkin. Pushkin wrote the tale in 1834 and it was first published in literary magazine Biblioteka dlya chteniya (Library for Reading) in 1835.The Golden Cockerel – a tragi-comedy showing the fatal results of human passion and weakness – allows us to place the plot in any surroundings and in any period. The Tsar Dodon thinks that his country is in danger and reaches out for the advice of an astrologer who supplies a magic Golden Cockerel to protect him. The cockerel confirms the Tsar's fears and the leader pre-emptively attacks a neighbouring country with an army led by his sons.
