Biography of Serguei Alexándrovich Esenin (1895-1925)

Russian poet, born in Kostantinovka in 1895, and died in Leningrad in 1925. His birth in a village in southern Russia came to him, when he settled in Petersburgo, a group of peasant poets, whose leader was Kliuev. She sang to the Russia in Radunica (1916) and blue (1918), always as their old misery. These poems are full of Orthodox liturgy despite vague paganizante animism that appears in them.

He also sang the revolution, as the only solution to remove the peasants from poverty, in Inonia and Transfiguration (1918) poems. Esenin acceded to the poetry of the imaginismo and rejected logic and coherence in De profundis forty times (1920) and ship of the asses (1920); from this time he began to realize that the revolution was an illusory dream, and was abandoned to a kind of self-destructive desire, where the scandals and extravagances broke definitely with its peasant beginnings. All of this was printed sample in confessions of a perdulario (1921), tabernario Moscow (1924) and Pugachyov (1921), dramatic poem which evokes the peasant revolt of the 17TH century.

He married Isadora Duncan in 1922; the marriage failed quickly and Esenin stayed in the United States sometime. When he returned to Russia intended to adapt to the new time with little sincere works - song of the great company (1924) and ballad at 26 (1924). The poetry of his later years was quite simple: Ana Snegina (1925) and black man (1926) are histrionic and snivel tone poems. Life was removed in Leningrad. Its success was due to the sweetness of the cadences and his generous and heartbreaking sincerity.
