lauded by href=''>Alexander Pushkin as the finest Russian elegiac poet. A member of the noble Baratynsky, or, more accurately, Boratynsky family (ru), the future poet received his education at the Page Corps at St. Petersburg, from which he was expelled at the age of 15 after stealing a snuffbox and five hundred roubles from the bureau of his accessory's uncle. He published several books of verse which Pushkin and other perceptive critics praised highly, but which met with a comparatively cool reception from the public, and with violent ridicule on the part of the young journalists of the "plebeian party".
