A distinguished Russian poet; born at Moscow, 1821; died at St. Petersburg, Mar. 20, 1897. He is probably the first of recent Russian poets. The tone of his writings is idealistic, and marked by great finish of form. During the Crimean War he published patriotic poems. His two plays are entitled "Tri Smerti" (Three Deaths) and "Dva Mira" (Two Worlds). The fourth edition of his works, in 3 vols., appeared in 1884.
