Google Doodle

Google is celebrating the 210th birthday of Romantic poet Fyodor Tutchev with a doodle features a scene from his poem “Spring Storm.”

Tyutchev was born into an old noble family in Ovstug near Bryansk. Most of his childhood years were spent in Moscow, where he joined the literary circle of Professor Merzlyakov at the age of 13.

His first printed work was a translation of Horace’s epistle to Maecenas, published when he was still 15. From that time on, his poetic language was distinguished from that of Pushkin and other contemporaries by its liberal use of majestic, solemn Slavonic archaisms.

Tutchev, who is generally considered the last of three great Romantic poets of Russia following Alexander Pushkin and Mikhail Lermontov, died on July 16 1873.
