Apollon Maikov

a.k.a. Apollon Nikolayevich Maykov (Maikov)

Author Code: RANM

Born: Jun. 4, 1821 - Moscow, Russia

Died: Mar. 20, 1897 - Saint Petersburg, Russia

Educated at home on his family's estate near Moscow, Maikov's family moved to Saint Petersburg when he was 13. He was taught Russian literature by Ivan Goncharov and encouraged to write poetry, which he began when he was 15. In 1837, Maikov entered Saint Petersburg University to study law. There he learned Latin and Greek and developed a love of the ancient world. In 1842, he published his first collection, Poems, which was enthusiastically received. Following his graduation, Maikov joined the Ministry of Finance as a clerk. He was awarded a stipend by Tsar Nicholas I and Maikov used the money to travel around Europe. Returning in 1844, he took a position as an assistant librarian at the Rumyantsev Museum. He became a central figure in the Saint Petersburg literary scene and was a close friend of Turgenev, Nekrasov and Belinsky. In 1847, he published Sketches of Rome, his second collection of verse. An adherent of the monarchy, Maikov was disillusioned by Russia's defeat in the Crimean War and published a number of critical works. By the 1860s, however, Maikov had once again come under the influence of conservatism. Maikov filled the gap left by the deaths of Lermontov and Pushkin and was one of Russia's most popular authors during his life and beyond. His other works include Two Fates (1845), 1854.Poems (1854), Three Deaths (1857), The Naples Album (1858), Songs of Modern Greece (1860), The Wanderer (1867), Two Worlds (1882) and Bringilda (1888).
