In the city of Nemyriv, Vinnytsia region in 1821 inNovember 28, the future Russian poet and literary figure Nikolai Alekseevich Nekrasov was born. His father was a military man, who later left service and settled in his ancestral estate in the village of Greshnevo (now it is called Nekrasovo). Mother, the daughter of wealthy parents, married against their will.
In 1832, the future poet was given to the Yaroslavlgymnasium. Nekrasov's biography briefly describes this period because the boy quickly finished his education, barely reaching the fifth grade. In part, this was due to problems with studies, in part because of a conflict with the leadership of the gymnasium on the basis of the satirical poems of a young poet.
Three years of deprivation (1838 - 1841), a hungry ration, communication with beggars - this is the whole biography of Nekrasov. In short, this period can be described as years of need and deprivation.
Literary activity and the first test of the pen
Gradually the business of Nekrasov began to improve. Articles in newspapers, essays for popular publications, the writing of vaudevilles under the name of Perepelsky allowed the poet to put together some savings that were launched to produce a small collection of poems called "Dreams and Sounds." The opinions of the critics were contradictory: Nekrasov's biography briefly mentions Zhukovsky's supportive reviews and the negligent Belinsky. It was so vulnerable to the poet that he bought up editions of his poems to destroy them.
In the mid-fifties, writer Nekrasov,whose biography was overshadowed by a serious illness, leaves for Italy to restore health. Returning to his homeland, he is pouring himself into the social life with renewed vigor. Surrendering to the impetuous flow of forward movement, dealing with Dobrolyubov and Chernyshevsky, Nekrasov tries on the role of the poet-citizen and adheres to these views until his death.
In 1877, on December 27, after a prolongedNekrasov's illness was gone. He was buried in the territory of the Novodevichy Monastery, accompanied by thousands of people, which was the first national recognition of his work.
