F. Tyutchev's Biography

Tyutchev's Accomplishments

Fyodor Ivanovich Tyutchev is generally considered the last of three great Romantic poets of Russia, following Alexander Pushkin and Mikhail Lermontov. His favourite themes are love, nature, time, fate, politics.

TO N. Your dear gaze, with innocent passion filled, The golden dawn of your heavenly feelings Serve as a silent reproach to them, At propitiation it is unskilled. .......... These hearts in which there is no truth Flee, my friend, as they would flee a judgment, Fearing as they fear childhood memories The loving gaze of your youth. .......... What is good for me are your eyes, Like the water of life, in the deeps of my being, Your living gaze which lives in me - Deep down I need it, like breath, like the sky. .......... Heavenly, shining only in the skies, Such is the light of souls in bliss, During nights of sin, this pure flame Burns in a fearsome abyss.

Fyodor Ivanovich Tyutchev December 5 – July 27, 1873. He 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. From 1819 to 1821 Tyutchev studied at the Philological Faculty of Moscow University. After graduating he joined the Foreign Office and in 1822 accompanied his relative, Count Ostermann-Tolstoy, to Munich to take up a post as trainee diplomat at the Russian legation. He was to remain abroad for 22 years. In Munich Tyutchev came under the influence of the German Romantic movement, and this is reflected in his poetry.Fyodor Ivanovich Tyutchev is generally acknowledged to be, together with Pushkin and Lermontov, one of the three greatest Russian poets of the nineteenth century. He was influenced by German philosophy and poetry.
