Mikhail Alekseevich Kuzmin (10/18/1872 - 3/01/1936)

The name of Mikhail Alexeevich Kuzmin stands in the history of Russian culture primarily as that of a great poet of the twentieth century, and a man whose writings significantly shaped the paths of Russian modernism. Like many outstanding artists, his achievements were largely obscured during the Soviet epoch; but in more recent years, not only his poems, but his prose, translations and musical compositions have become widely appreciated as influential cultural models.

Mikhail Kuzmin was born in Yaroslavl, to the north east of Moscow, in 1872; soon after, his family moved to Saratov, on the banks of the Volga. Here Kuzmin spent his childhood in picturesque surroundings—reading avidly (including foreign-language volumes), listening to and making music with the family, and enjoying a peaceful and relatively rural existence. He was to enjoy the freedom and beauty of this life until he was twelve, when the family moved to St Petersburg. In later years, these early memories were to sustain and influence his creative works.
