Question: Who was Ivan Andreevich Krilof?

Answer 1/2
The great Russian fabulist, born at Moscow, son of a soldier; began his literary career writing dramas and editing magazines; was some time secretary to the governor of Livonia, and for years lived an idle roving life; at 40 his fables in the Moscow Spectator brought him fame in 1805; next year he was appointed to a Government post at St. Petersburg, and in 1821 to a post in the Imperial Public Library; he was an eccentric, much-loved man, and the humor and sympathy of his writings have won for him the title of the La Fontaine of Russia. Lived from 1768-1844.
