Alexander Pushkin

ALEXANDER PUSHKIN (1799-1837) is considered by most to be Russia's greatest poet. His life was cut short by a duel, yet he was nevertheless astoundingly prolific, and his poems are as rich and complex as they are beautiful. In his poetry and his prose, he revolutionized Russian literature by mixing storytelling and satire with vernacular language.
