Alexander Blok


Russian poet and dramatist. He was the principal representative of Russian Symbolism ( Symbolist movement). He later rejected what he termed their sterile bourgeois intellectualism and embraced the Bolshevik movement as essential for the redemption of the Russian people. Influenced by early 19th-century Romantic poetry, he wrote musical verse in which sound was paramount. His preeminent work of impressionistic verse was the enigmatic ballad The Twelve (1918), which united the Russian Revolution and Christianity in an apocalyptic vision. In the era of post revolutionary hardship he declined into mental and physical illness, possibly brought on by venereal disease, and died on 7 August 1921 at age 40.
