Great literature is simply language charged with meaning to the utmost possible degree. - Ezra Pound 1885-1972

Eduard Georigievich Bagritsky (Deyubin)

(1895 - 1934)

Eduard Georigievich Bagritsky was a Russian Soviet poet. He was born into a poor family in Odessa. He studied in a community college, after which he took courses on land surveying.

Bagritsky's first material was published in local Odessa almanacs and newspapers in 1915. He took part in the civil army, in the Osobo Partisan Brigade. Bagritsky later wrote about this in "Thoughts on Opanasa", published in 1926.

In 1920, following in the footsteps of V. Mayakovsky, Bagritsky became a member of YUGROSTA. He wrote fliers, posters, epigrams, and stories. In 1925, Bagritsky moved to Moscow, where he became quite a famous poet. His first book, "South-West", published in 1928, moved him to the forefront of Soviet poetry.

Bagritsky always wrote romantically about his youth, that wonderful time in life, with all its passions, soulful impulses, and emotional tempests.
