Pletnev belonged also to the composition of the second branch of the Academy of Sciences since its formation in 1841, taught Russian language and literature Tsarevich Alexander Nikolaevich, etc.. of imperial house. Very early Pletnev became close with Pushkin and other luminaries of Pushkin's circle. Character is extremely soft, delicate and obliging, Pletnev was a loyal and caring friend that has been accessed, and Zhukovsky, Pushkin, Gogol, all of them served Pletnev and deed, and the Board; his opinion they are valued. Speaking at a literary career poems, which in 1820-ies appeared in "Sorevnovatele", "Transactions of the Free Society of Lovers of Literature of Russia", "Northern Flowers", etc.. magazines and anthologies, and which, with the smoothness of the verse, sometimes not without grace and poetic spark, Pletnev soon turned to literary criticism, having become a mouthpiece of theoretical views of Pushkin circle. Already in his first critical article, . dedicated poems Milonova (in "Sorevnovatele", . 1822), . Pletnev argued, . that the poet must be born, . and can not be done, . but innate talent to spend a lot of work, . purely technical, . to fully master the form and give it harmony, . elegance, . beauty,
. Both of these ideas at that time were entirely new, and lay the basis for all the aspirations of Pushkin's circle: The first idea is the negation pseudo, . his desire, . through the rhetoric and piitiki, . artificially create the poets, the second line with the essence of the literary movement of the time, . whose task was precisely to establish the forms of poetry and language,

The question of nationality in literature in 1833, Mr. Pletnev. devoted an entire speech in which he pointed out the importance of folk poems for literature in terms of patriotism and artistic expression. By the end of 1830 Pletnev was a remarkable for that time of the national characteristics of literature, . about its relationship with the life of society, . on the individual abilities of the writer, . the need to "paint and life", . without which literature would make it "dry out the abstractions",
. Left to the end of his days peacefully aesthetics, . imparted primary importance on the form and language, . Pletnev was unable to avoid discord with the further development of literature, but came out of the circle of Pushkin, . where neoclassic Batiushkov peacefully coexisted with romantic Zhukovsky, . and the latter warmly welcomed the realist Gogol, . Pletnev always keep an, . love watching the progress of literature and, . general, . recognized the right of new literary forms and trends, . if only their was a harbinger of a strong talent, . satisfied the aesthetic requirements,
. He was able to understand Gogol, with his strengths and weaknesses: it belongs to one of the best assessments "Dead Souls" (in "Contemporary", 1842).
