Boris Leonidovich Pasternak
Birth: Feb. 10, 1890
Moscow Federal City, Russia
Death: May 30, 1960
Moscow Oblast, Russia

Author. He made his debut 1914 with the collection Bliznets V Tuchakn, and has been recognized for several poems and novels throughout his career. He also worked as a translator, of which William Shakespeare┤s Hamlet is notorious. During World War I, he worked at a chemical factory in the Ural mountains. His journey there most likely gave him the material for his most famous work, the modern-day classic "Doctor Zhivago," a novel later to become an Oscar-winning movie, starring Omar Sharif and Julie Christie. In 1958 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, but was forced to reject the award by the Soviet authorities. He died of cancer at his home in Peredelkino, a suburb of Moscow, where he also is buried. (bio by: Peter Robsahm)
