On the 80th anniversary of Siarhiej Fiodaravic Davidovic, the Hall of Belarusian Literature (room 205) hosts the exhibition “The Feeling of an Endless Light” from July 1st to August 15th.

Siarhiej Davidovic is both an artist and a novelist, but above all a poet. Moreover, not only because he successfully inhabits the genres of poetry and poems, but also the poet according to the warehouse of his soul, world perception. His life path is filled with active creative work. A fruitful work of writing is crowned with a 14-volume collection of works, numerous editions of books of poetry and prose, poems and fairy tales for children.

S. Davidovich's works are distinguished by their thematic diversity and depth of empathy for their literary heroes, they are united by the author's sincerity and love for his land. Many of them are dedicated to their native land, the landscapes of Lahojsyna. Works for children teach responsiveness, encourage you to treat all life on earth carefully and responsibly.

Davidovich's talent in the genre of lyric-epic poems was truly revealed. In terms of genre and subject matter, his poems are different: lyrical sublimity of feelings, philosophical thinking, humor, satire, and grotesque, but all works are united by a central cause – the cause of pain, anxiety, and responsibility for their native land, for their people. As Mikhail Poznyakov accurately noted, “they include ‘the view of people’s life’. No one has shown it so much after Yakub Kolas in Novaya Zemlya and Neil Gilevich in the novel Natural Children, as Davidovich in his poems.”

Songs by Belarusian composers were written based on the words of Sergey Davidovich, I. Luchanok, E.Glebov, E. Zaritsky, L. Zahlevny and others. In 2001, the Belarus film studio released the comedy “Svezhina s Salyutom” based on his script.


The exhibition introduces visitors to the rich literary heritage of the writer, as well as materials about the life and creative path of the hero of the day. Readers of the book of poems will not be left indifferent “Lusterka lesu,” “Zvany chasu,” “100 paem,” poetic and prose books “Nyasu svoy kryzh,” “Horkaya kroplia,” “Dushy mayoj byasonica,” “Gumarynku pad yazyk,” “Razvod po Slavyansky,” “U viry padzej,” “Rozdum,” “Akrylenast,” books for children “Kazki i prygody,” “Dzedava zhalejka,” “Dzivos z dzivosay,” and other works by Sergey Fedorovich Davidovich.
