YEVGENY BARATYNSKY (1800-1844) was a poet of the Romantic period who was hailed by Alexander Pushkin as Russia’s finest elegiac poet. Baratynsky was coolly received by the public, however, for his emphasis on thought at the expense of the pathos that characterized poetry at the time – a disappointment that contributed to the intense personal and professional isolation he experienced toward the end of his life. Long obscured by Pushkin’s shadow, Baratynsky was rediscovered in the early twentieth century by the Russian Symbolists, who revered his work for its intellectual strength.
