Leonid Andreyev LEONID NIKOLAYEVICH ANDREYEV (1871-1919) was one of the finest writers of Russia’s Silver Age. The author of many tragic works distinguished by their hopelessness and negative views on the nature of man and his existence, Andreyev’s earlier works focused on social contradictions in Russian society. Yet, with time, his books became increasingly more symbolic and filled with existential despair. Perhaps it is not surprising, therefore, that Andreyev’s life had its fill of tragedy. His initial enthusiasm for revolutionary ideas was soon replaced by a total rejection of the revolution. He died in emigration, in Finland, despairing at what was unfolding in Russia.
