. Much of the recent stories was published in book form titled "Tales of Grandfather Irenaeus'. One of the most outstanding literary work parties Odoevskogo was taking care of educating the people, while extremely rare, and regarded by many as a strange freak. For many years, consisted Odoyevski editor of "Rural Review", published by the Ministry of Internal Affairs, together with his friend, A.P. Zabolotskii-Desyatovsky, . He published a book "Rural Reading", . under the title: "What the peasant Nahum children and insisted on the potatoes", .

. "Honest literature - he wrote - as if examination vessel, avanpostnaya service among public deceit". He always stood on guard against any ambiguity and abominable literary devices, warned the authors of the dangers which threatened them in troubled times passionately stood up for them where he could, consistently cared about expanding the range of publications. It must have been to efforts of his resolution Fatherland Notes. While welcoming the relief censorship rules in 1865. (which he first wrote them in the preparation of detailed notes on censorship and its history with us), . Odoyevski spoken out against the takeover of the French Napoleonic system of warnings and advocated the abolition of the absolute interdiction of import to Russia hostile to her books,
. Until the fifties on his views on the attitude of Russia towards the West Odoyevski approached in many respects to the Slavophiles, . Although never systematically to them not overly, but already in the early 40-ies he had a high opinion of Peter, . a personal acquaintance with the "rotten West" during trips abroad, . since 1856,
. (In 1859, Mr.. He was a deputy of the Imperial Public Library at the anniversary of Schiller in Weimar, Germany), made him change his view on the meaning of European civilization. This was expressed with particular force in his notes and papers that make up an interesting collection of observations about the kinds of issues (it is stored in the Public Library). Signs of "our inborn disease" Odoyevski sees "the whole people of laziness of mind, of inconsistency and lack of exposure" and resents the fact our property, which he calls "rukavospustiem". The idealism of the people - he writes - is mostly in the form of tolerance towards other peoples and understanding of their.

. If we are a Russian man went through a refurbishing and not forgotten the Christian love, therefore it will proc - but it is still ahead and not back ". Transformations of Alexander II, upgraded Russian life, met in Odoyevski enthusiastic sympathy. He offered to take in the new year with Russia on February 19 and always in a circle of friends were gathered to celebrate "the great first day of free labor," as he put it in a poem written after reading the manifesto of the abolition of serfdom. When in 1865. in the newspaper "News" was held under the pretext of streamlining our polity, . Draft talent nobility of such benefits, . that, . essentially, . would be the restoration of serfdom, . only in another form, . - Odoyevski wrote ardent protest, . which, . on behalf of many, . its signatories, . defined the tasks of the nobility: "1) that every effort of mind and soul to eliminate the remaining effects of serfdom, . now with God's help, destroyed, . but the former permanent source of disaster for Russia and a disgrace for all its nobility, and 2) to adopt a conscientious and zealous participation in the new zemstvos and a new trial, . and activities that inspire us that experience and knowledge of rural and Judicial Affairs, . without which the institution would remain fruitless, . due to lack of implementing and 3) does not provide themselves to escort some of their selfish class interests, . not seek enmity with other classes before the court and the law, . but together and collectively with all loyal subjects to work for the glory of the Emperor and the benefit of all of the fatherland and 4) taking advantage of higher education and greater prosperity, . use available funds for the dissemination of useful knowledge in all sections of the people, . to learn his successes of Arts and Sciences, . how it is possible for the nobility ",
. Complaint filed this in some quarters of Moscow fierce indignation against Odoevskogo, he was accused of betraying his own time, of betraying the interests of the nobility, in helping to end the "Vesti". Odoyevski, . indignantly refuted these allegations, . said: "My belief - not since yesterday, from an early age I expressed them by all available means to me: a pen - as far as it allowed then in print, . as well as in government relations, . orally speech - not only in private conversations, . but also in official committees, always and everywhere, I argued the need for abolishing serfdom and pointed to the pernicious influence of the oligarchy in Russia for more than 30 years of my public life, gave me a new argument in support of my belief,
. Uchivshis logic from an early age and older, I do not think it necessary to change my opinion in favor of any political party. I have never walked or under whose guise, do not impose my opinions, but admonished them to always publicly very attributive and talkative, but now it too late for me to relearn. The title of a Russian nobleman, . my long, . honest, . laborers Life, . not stained or intrigues, . nor intrigues, . or even ambition, . Finally, . if you like, . and my historic name - not only give me the right, . but imposes on me the duty not to remain in timid silence, . which could be taken as a sign of consent, . in, . which I believe the highest human origin and which is daily put into practice in my judicial post, . namely: absolute equality before the court and the law, . without distinction of rank and status "with extreme attention, watched over Odoyevski launched in 1866,
. prison reform and the introduction of work in prisons. Even in "Russian Nights", he pointed to the harmful side punitive correctional systems based on the absolute solitude and silence. Updated court found him hot champion. "Trial by jury - he wrote - is important because that leads to the realization of justice these people who were unaware of the need for this, he educates conscience. All, . that is beautiful and high in British law, . Courts, . Police, . manners - all this was evolved by a jury, . there is scope for everyone to be ever uncontrolled judge your neighbor, . but the judge publicly, . a critique of public opinion,

Shortly before his death, . amounted to an official memorandum note to the emperor, . which, . pointing to a harmful influence on the moral development of young people to, . that she had seen and heard in private and public life in the pre-reform time, . under the rule of serfdom and bessudiya, . pleaded for the preservation and strengthening began, . underlying the reforms,
. The note was submitted to the emperor after the death of Odoevskogo, and Alexander II wrote to her: "I beg to thank me for the widow of a letter to her husband, whom I sincerely loved and respected".
