In the early work of V.V. Mayakovsky, the images of the estate and the dacha were usually interpreted in a humorous way, associated with the bygone noble life. However, it was in Kuokkala, Levashovo near Petrograd, that the poet wrote significant parts of the poems “Cloud in pants” and “Mystery Buff.” Dacha life in Pushkino near Moscow together with L.Yu. and O.M. Brik in the summer of 1920–1929 also contributed to his creativity. This place is mentioned in the title of “An extraordinary adventure...”, the events of this work unfold there. The plots of the poems “Attitude to the young Lady,” “In the Heine way,” “Dacha Case” etc. are associated with a summer pastime. Individual chapters of the poem “Good!” were first read at the dacha in the summer of 1927. The materials of the poet’s notebooks no. 8 (January–May 1921) and no. 15 (January–June 1922), provided by the V.V. Mayakovsky State Museum, form the basis of the research. The article examines the work on the poems of 1920 and the poem “The Fifth International,” which most vividly reflected the features of the poet’s village life. Fragments of notebook texts are published for the first time.
