Сегодня родился Плещеев Алексей Николаевич
On December 4, 1825 Pleshcheev Alexey Nikolaevich. This is a Russian writer, a poet, a translator, a literary and theatrical critic. In 1846 the first collection of verses made Pleshcheev well-known in the revolutionary youth environment. Numerous years of poverty and deprivations make him an authoritative writer, a critic, a publisher, and at the end of life a patron. Many works of the poet (especially — verses for children) became axiomatic, are considered as classics. On Pleshcheev's verses the most famous Russian composers wrote more than hundred romances.
