NIKOLAI NEKRASOV (1821-1878) was a poet, critic, writer, and, most notably, the talented publisher for 20 years of the important literary journal Sovremennik. He was greatly influenced by his work alongside the critic Vissarion Belinsky. His best-known poems are Russian Women and Who is Happy in Russia? At his funeral, Fyodor Dostoyevsky eulogized him as the greatest poet since Pushkin and Lermontov.
