Mikhail Saltykov-Shchedrin
Birth: Jan. 27, 1826
Death: May 10, 1889

Satirist. Born in Tula, Russia, he spent much of his life as a mid-level civil servant in the provinces, which gave him plenty of material for his writing. He left government service in 1868 and immediately set to work on "The History of a Town" (1870), a collection of sketches that brilliantly satirized Russian bureaucrats and the middle class. "The Golovyov Family" (1876), Saltykov's only novel, lacks the bite of his sketches but is a revealing look at the apathy of his time. With "Fables" (1885) he presented his pointed satirical thrusts as tales in the manner of Aesop, a shrewd device to circumvent the censor. For a time he was editor of the literary magazine "The Contemporary". (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
