Sternian Code in the Concept of Peter III Image by Viktor Sosnora

The article analyzes the original concept of the Peter III personality in the essay by V. Sosnora «The Rescuer of the Country». Reminiscences from L. Stern novels, mainly from «The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy», create an interpretation code that corelates controversially with the established historic mythology based on memoire sources.
