Dmitry Merezhkovsky

a.k.a. Dmitry Sergeyevich Merezhkovsky

Author Code: RDSM

Born: Aug. 14, 1866 - St. Petersburg, Russia

Died: Dec. 9, 1941 - Paris, France

Educated at the St. Petersburg Third Classic Gymnasium, Merezhkovsky began writing poetry when he was 13. After being encouraged by Princess Yekaterina Vorontzova, who thought his verses were admirable, he published his first book of verses in 1879. He continued his education at the University of St. Petersburg, receiving his PhD in 1889. He had become close friends with the poet Semyon Nadson and the two joined the Literary Society. Unfortunately, Nadson died in 1887 and this greatly affected Merezhkovsky.He travelled around Russia after graduating and met Zinaida Gippius and the two were married. He produced his first play, Sylvio, in 1890 and he was beginning to make an impact. He initiated the Symbolist movement with poems such as Death (1891). In 1895, his first novel, The Death of the Gods, appeared as the first of a trilogy on Christ and Antichrist, and won critical acclaim. Merezhkovsky and his wife formed a group called the Religious-Philosophical Meetings in 1901, which eventually included members such as Bulgakov, Rozanov and Berdyayev. The 1905 Revolution and Russia's defeat by Japan changed Merezhkovsky's attitude to the monarchy and his political views became more leftist. Towards the end of the pre-war years, he was even accused of being linked with terrorists. In 1914, he was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature and then the war began, and with it the Russian Revolution. Disillusionment set in and the Merezhkovskys fled Russia, first to Poland and then to France. In 1927, they formed a literary group, The Green Lamp, which attracted numerous Russian writers. His wife became violently opposed to Bolshevism and wrote many notable works. Merezhkovsky never returned to Russia, but worked until the day of his death. His works include Symbols. Poems and Songs (1892), The Eternal Companions (1897), Resurrection of Gods. Leonardo da Vinci (1900), Peter and Alexis (1904), The Last Saint (1908), Sick Russia (1910), December 14 (1918), The Birth of Gods. Tutankhamun in Crete (1925), Messiah (1928), Mystery of the West: Atlantis-Europe (1930) and Unknown Jesus (1932).
