PBC0209: yearning for change

PBC 209 expresses a deep love and yearning for change across all parts of Russia—city and village, province and center. With this PBC some works urge Russians to shake off “sleepy Rus’” (W184), while others imagine the revolution giving birth to a “new, strong people” (W221), who are creative and cultivated, in a free country with freedom of association.
