Nikolai Yazykov (1803–1847)

Yazykov, Nikolai Mikhailovich (yäs-ē’kov). A Russian poet; born in Simbirsk, March 16, 1803; died at Moscow, Jan. 7, 1847. His earliest verse was in a light and amatory vein (hence his sobriquet ‘The Russian Anacreon’), but ill health changed the current of his thoughts. His first book is a collection of amorous lyrics, and his last a compilation of religious poetry.
