Antony Pogorelsky — real name Alexei Perovsky (1787-1836) was an important Russian writer of the early 19th century. An illegitimate son of a noble, he volunteered for the War of 1812 and, while serving in Germany as a member of the army occupying Saxony, he became influenced by Russian Romantic prose. He later moved to Petersburg, where he befriended Pushkin and wrote some of the first fantastic literature in Russian including The Black Hen, the first Russian literary work for children.
