Alexander Blok

a.k.a. Alexander Alexandrovich Blok

Author Code: RABX

Born: Nov. 16, 1880 - St. Petersburg, Russia

Died: Aug. 7, 1921 - Smolensky, Russia

Educated at the University of St. Petersburg, Blok studied philology. He began writing poetry while still a student and published his first book of poems, Verses About the Lady Beautiful, in 1904. He received his degree in 1906 and, that same year, published Accidental Joy. Blok was also interested in the theatre and produced a number of dramatic works including King on the Square and The Stranger. Politically active, Blok took part in the Revolution of 1905 and was an initial believer in the justification of the October 1917 Revolution. Blok has often been compared to Pushkin and is said to have been a strong influence on later writers such as Pasternak and Nabakov. In 1919, he became a director of the Bolshoi Dramatic Theatre and in 1920 he was elected to the Board of Directors of the Russian Writer's Union. The exact cause of his early death is not known, but some have speculated that the great famine during the civil war was a contributing factor to his deteriorating health. Today, Blok is regarded as the greatest Russian lyric poet since Pushkin. His other works include The City (1906), Mask of Snow (1907), Land in the Snow (1908), Night Hours (1911), All Year Round (1912), Fairy Tale (1912), The Twelve (1918), The Last Days of the Old Regime (1919), Iambii (1919), Grey Morning (1920), The Scythians (1920) and Adolescent Verses (1921).
