Nicholas Nekrasov

a.k.a. Nicholas Alexeievitch Nekrasov

Author Code: RNAN

Born: Nov. 22, 1821 - Vinitza, Podolia, Poland

Died: Dec. 27, 1877 - St. Petersburg, Russia

Descended from a noble family, Nekrasov was raised on the family estate in Yaroslav province on the river Volga. He began to write poetry while a young student in grammar school and was subsequently expelled when the content of his poems was critical of teachers. His father sent him to St. Petersburg to embark on a military career, but instead he joined the University and spent the next three years in abject poverty when his father cut off his allowance. He took a variety of literary jobs, writing reviews, essays, short stories for periodicals, etc. until a small volume of his poems was brought to the attention of Byelinsky, who then helped to establish Nekrasov's credentials as a great poet. In 1847, he purchased the monthly magazine Sovremenik, a contemporary review periodical which he proceeded to edit until it was shut down by the authorities in 1866. He became one of Russia's favourite poets. His most famous piece, Who Can Be Happy and Free in Russia?, was written near the end of his life and was published posthumously in 1879.
