Vsevolod Garshin

VSEVOLOD GARSHIN (1855-1888) was a Russian short story author whose works were primarily based on his experiences of serving as a soldier and being wounded in the Russo-Turkish War. Despite achieving early literary recognition, Garshin suffered from mental illness and eventually died after a suicide attempt at the age of 33. His story “The Red Flower” is often placed within the canon of Russian asylum stories that include Gogol’s “Diary of a Madman” and Chekhov’s “Ward No. 6.”
