The analytical review presents proceedings of the international scientific conference “Mikhailovskoe” Pushkin Readings — 2021: “Heaven’s chosen singer” (Pushkinskie Gory, August 21–22, 2021). The paper aims to attract the attention of researchers to the personality of A. S. Pushkin, to reveal the historical and cultural potential of modern Pushkin studies and to show new directions in the study of the poet’s creativity in various branches of humanitarian knowledge. It is emphasized that the participants of the readings paid special attention to historical parallels and personalities, first of all to Alexander Nevsky, the ancestors of A. S. Pushkin, poets of the Russian diaspora. Reports on the art of Orthodox churches aroused great interest. Among the urgent issues of modern Pushkin studies, the authors named applied issues of studying poet’s work at school, exploring A. S. Pushkin’s routes that passed through the territory of present-day Belarus. The paper points out that the legacy of the creator has been widely embodied not only in literature and science, but also in cinema, art and marble works. The issues of archival research occupied an important place in the readings and included introducing of an unknown document from the philological collection of N. S. Ashukin “Rules of spelling when publishing Pushkin’s works”. The readings summed up the results of the local history work of historians and slavists of the Pskov region and other regions of Russia on the study of A. S. Pushkin’s genealogy and his extensive connections during the exile to Mikhailovskoe, presented new books and art publications that will contribute to the actualization of Pushkin studies in the 21th century.
