Ivan Goncharov

a.k.a. Ivan Aleksandrovich Goncharov

Author Code: RIAG

Born: Jun. 18, 1812 - Simbirsk (Ulyanovsk), Russia

Died: Sep. 15, 1891 - St. Petersburg, Russia

Educated at Moscow University, Goncharov entered the civil service where he continued until his retirement in 1867. In 1847, he published his first novel, A Common Story. From 1852 to 1855 he travelled abroad as the secretary to Admiral Putyatin and in 1858, published his record of thejourney, The Frigate Pallada. In 1859, his masterpiece, Oblomov, appeared and gained both critical and popular success. Suffering from paranoia, Goncharov often accused other authors of stealing his ideas, including Turgenev and Gustave Flaubert. He published his last novel, The Precipice, in 1869 which received negative reviews and which led him to withdraw from literary pursuits. Goncharov also produced numerous short stories, essays, critics and his memoirs, which were published posthumously in 1919 as Neobyknovennaya Istoriya.
