a.k.a. Ivan Alekseyevich Bunin

Author Code: RIBX

Born: Oct. 22, 1870 - Voronezh, Russia

Died: Nov. 8, 1953 - Paris, France

Educated at a public school at Yelets, Bunin was forced to return home after only 5 years because of family problems. With the encouragement of his brother, Bunin immersed himself in reading the Russian classics and began to write - primarily poetry in the first instance. In 1887, he published his first poem in a St. Petersburg magazine. Over the next few years he held a number of positions including government clerk, librarian, statistician and reporter. In 1891, he published his first story, Country Sketch. He corresponded with Chekhoiv, with whom he became close friends, and met Tolstoy and Gorky. In 1898 he married and continued to travel throughout Russia. In 1901, he published Listopad, a collection of poetry dedicated to Gorky. In 1903, he was awarded the Pushkin Prize by the Russian Academy of Science for his translation of Longfellow's Hiawatha and in 1909 he was made a member of the Academy. Bunin's first novel, The Village, appeared in 1910 and was an immediate success. He followed this in 1912 with Dry Valley another work depicting village life. Bunin continued to travel widely, visiting many countries, until the outbreak of war in 1914. When the Revolution took place in 1917, Bunin moved to Odessa and in 1919, left Russia for France. In 1920, he published his diary Okayannye Dni which blasted the Bolshevik regime. In 1933, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature. During World War II, Bunin was a strong opponent of Nazism and is said to have sheltered a Jew in his home at Grasse throughout the occupation. After the war, Bunin's views on the Soviet Union softened and his works were again allowed to be published there. His other works include Jericho Rose (1924), Mitya's Love (1925), Lika (1929), The Life of Arsenyev (1933), The Elaghin Affair (1935), Shadowed Paths (1946) and Memories and Portraits (1950). He also published a large quantity of poetry and short stories throughout his career.
