Nikolai Semyonovich Leskov (4 (16) February 1831, the village of Gorokhovo, now the Oryol region - 21 February (5 March) 1895, Petersburg) - Russian writer. At the beginning of his creative activity he wrote under the pseudonym M. Stebnitsky. He was called the most national of the writers of Russia, but in his spiritual formation a significant role was played by Ukrainian culture, which became close to him during the eight years of his Kiev life in his youth, and English, which he mastered thanks to many years of close communication with an older relative on the part of A. Scott. The son of NS Leskov, Andrei Leskov, worked for many years on the biography of the writer, having finished it even before the Great Patriotic War. This work was published in 1954. In 1974, the house-museum of N. S. Leskov was opened in Oryol. In 1981, in honor of the 150th anniversary of the birth of the writer, a monument to Leskov was erected in Orel. Biography Leskov`s father - Semyon Dmitrievich Leskov (1789 - 1848), was a native of the spiritual environment. According to Nikolai Semyonovich: "... a great, wonderful clever man and a dense seminarian." However, his father broke with the spiritual environment and entered the service in the Oryol criminal chamber, where after his death (in 1848) Nikolai Semyonovich himself entered, leaving the gymnasium. After several years of government and private service, he began to publish relatively late - in his thirtieth year of life, placing several notes in the newspaper "St. Petersburg Vedomosti" (1860), several articles in the Kiev editions "Modern Medicine" and "Economic Index". Having moved to St. Petersburg in 1861, he began to collaborate in the newspaper Severnaya Beelya, later in the journals Otechestvennye zapiski, Vremya, Russkaya Rech, etc. In an article about the fires in May 1862, which were rumored to be arson , carried out by revolutionary-minded students and Poles, mentioned these rumors, which was perceived by the democratic public as a denunciation, and demanded that the authorities confirm or deny them, which caused the displeasure of the authorities. As a result, he was sent by the editors of "Severnaya Beely" on a long business trip through Dinaburg, Vilna, Grodno, Pinsk, Lvov, Prague, Krakow to Paris. Soon Leskov went for a ride around the Tavrichesky Garden. This caused an exacerbation of the disease (angina pectoris), which Leskov had suffered for many years. On February 21 (March 3), 1895, the writer died. Some works Novels * "Nowhere" (1864) * "On Knives" (1870) * "Cathedrals" (1872) * "The Enchanted Wanderer" (1873) Stories * "Warrior" (1866) * "The Sealed Angel" (1873) * "At the End of the World" (1875) * "Lefty" (1881) * "Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District" (1865) * "Midniters" (1891) Stories * "Non-lethal Golovan" (1880) * "Hare Loot" (1894) Essays * "A Jew in Russia: A Few Remarks on the Jewish Question" (1883) Articles * "On Hellish Icons" (1873) * "On Russian Icon Painting" (1873) Material from Wikipedia - the free encyclopedia
