Though you may not speak Russian, you are likely already familiar with either some famous Russian authors or famous Russian literature. Many people have heard of Russiaâ€™s famous poet Alexander Pushkin while others may be familiar with folklore stories which have been translated into a number of other languages. Russia produced very little literature before the 19th century but after this period Russia entered a golden age culturally which is clearly reflected in her art, architecture, music and literature. This was the time when Pushkin came to the fore as a great poet amongst other literary contemporaries such as the novelists Leo Tolstoy and Fyodor Dostoevsky. Pushkin is credited with developing the literary form of Russian, giving it more nuances and augmenting the Russian lexicon to a large degree. Many would say that Puskin laid the groundwork for modern Russian literature.
