About the author (1983)

Pushi was born in Moscow. In 1817 he entered government service, but his liberalism caused him to exile to S Russia in 1820, until after the ascension of Nicholas I in 1826. Hailed in Russia as its greatest poet. He also wrote many lyrical poems, tales, and essays, and was appointed Russian histographer. His marriage to Nikolayevna Goncharova proved unhappy and led to his early death, defending his wife;s honour in a duel with her brother-in-law.
