Anton Antónovich, Baron Delwig (1798–1831)

Delwig, Anton Antónovich, Baron (del’vig). A Russian lyrist (1798–1831); born in Moscow. He was a schoolfellow and lifelong friend of Pushkin. He held government office, but his St. Petersburg house was the rallying place of the literary world, especially of the younger set,—Pushkin, Glinka, Baratinsky, Vlasemsky. Among his poetical compositions those written in the tone of the popular ballad are the best, and some of them are in great favor.
