Russian Lessons: Pushkin

Learn Russian with Russian from Russia! In this video, I’m talking about Pushkin. Alexander Pushkin, who is considered by many to be the greatest Russian poet and the founder of modern Russian literature, was fatally wounded on February, 8. Today is Feb 7, and I’ve decided to visit the place of the Pushkin last duel.

Aleksandr Sergeevich Pushkin – Russian poet, playwright and prose writer, who set up the foundations of the Russian realistic trend; critic and literary theorist, historian, essayist; one of the most authoritative literary figures of the first third of the XIX century.

Pushkin has had the reputation of being one of the greatest Russian national poets. Pushkin is regarded as the founder of the modern Russian literary language.

He was 37 years old when he died. Actually, he was killed in a duel. As with many duels, the cause of the disagreement was a woman. Before this, Pushkin was involved in many of them, but this one was fatal.
