In fairy tales, the bird becomes the object of difficult tasks: a hero has to bring a feather of the firebird, goes out to catch the bird, of his own accord or at the request of the father or king. The creature is enchanting and highly sought after, but the hero, originally enchanted by the glowing pen, blames him for his circumstances. The story of the firebird served as a template and inspiration for many other works, as well as for Pyotr Jerschow's The Humpbacked Horse. With the ballet suite L'Oiseau de feu, the Russian composer Igor Stravinsky also pays homage to the legend of the mythical creature.
