Acerca de Alexander Pushkin
Alexander Pushkin was born into the Russian nobility in Moscow in 1799. Educated by French tutors while learning Russian from the household serfs, he began publishing poems in his early teens and soon gained widespread recognition, especially for his use of vernacular. At 18 he received a government appointment in St. Petersburg and threw himself into cultural life, including associating with radical intellectuals. He published his first major work, the long poem Rusian and Ludmila, in 1820, shortly before being banished from the capital for writing political poems such as Ode to Liberty.In 1825 some friends were involved in the Decembrist uprising, and Pushkin’s restrictions were tightened. Yet he wrote some of his greatest work in exile, including his play Boris Godunov and his novel-in-verse Eugene Onegin. Finally pardoned by the Tsar, he married Natalya Goncharova in 1831. They became regulars of court society, which soon impoverished Pushkin, and in 1837, scandalous rumors about Natalya prompted him to challenge an alleged paramour to a duel. Wounded, Pushkin died two days later. Fearing a public outpouring at his funeral, the government removed his body in the night, to be buried at his family’s distant estate. Josh Billings is a fiction writer and translator who lives in Maine. He is also the translator of the Melville House edition of THe Duel, by Aleksandr Kuprin
Acerca de Saki
Hector Hugo Munro, better known by his pen name Saki, was born in Burma in 1870. He came to England for schooling following the early death of his mother, and was raised by his grandmother. After much travelling he followed in his fathers footsteps and worked for the Indian Imperian Police in Burma, before falling ill and returning to England to pursue a career in journalism. He published his first book, The Rise of the Russian Empire, in 1900. Throughout his writing career he worked as a foreign correspondent and fought in World War I, during which he was killed by a sniper in 1916. He was considered a master of the short story.
Acerca de Nikolai Gógol
Nikolái Gógol (Soróchintsi, Ucrania, 1809 – Moscú, 1852).Escritor ucraniano en lengua rusa. Hijo de un pequeño terrateniente, a los diecinueve años se trasladó a San Petersburgo para intentar, sin éxito, labrarse un futuro como burócrata de la administración zarista. Entre sus primeras obras destacan Las veladas de Dikanka, Mirgorod y Arabescos.En 1836 publicó la comedia El inspector, una sátira de la corrupción de la burocracia que obligó al escritor a abandonar temporalmente el país. Instalado en Roma, en 1842 escribió buena parte de su obra más importante, Almas muertas, donde describía sarcásticamente la Rusia feudal. También en ese año publicó El capote, obra que ejercería una enorme influencia en la literatura rusa.
Acerca de H. H. Munro
Hector Hugh Munro was born in 1870, and reared in England by imperious aunts while his parents were abroad. While living in Burma, he began writing fiction, which appeared in serialized form in a British gazette. To escape backlash from his scathing analysis of blundering by the British government during the Boer War, he took on the pen name Saki, derived from the Victorian fad work The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám.
Acerca de Anton Chekhov
Anton Chekhov was one of the most important and influential playwrights in world theatre. Chekhov began his career writing jokes for popular magazines to support himself while he studied to become a medical doctor. He wrote twelve plays (including The Cherry Orchard, Uncle Vanya, Three Sisters, The Seagull, Ivanov and the untitled play often called Platonov) and around six hundred stories, revolutionising both forms forever – and continued to practise medicine throughout his literary career. He died from tuberculosis in 1904 at the age of forty-four.
