With the term beautiful epoch, the author means those ten eventful years following the death of the Leader. The word beautiful is meant ironically, because this decade, of course, saw both good and bad things. Nevertheless, what a time it was! How many hopes there were!... What a sense of an approaching festivity!... How many events! Remember!... The Twentieth Party Congress the first satellite!... Man in space!... With Pushkin's words: How the Russian heart throbbed at the word Fatherland. And the miracle of art! Wherever you look, suddenly and the tremendous literature!... A brilliant galaxy of poets!... New theatres the great cinema!...
