Mikhail Petrovich Artzybashev

Artzybashev, Mikhail Petrovich (mēkhəyēlˈ pētrôˈvĭch ärtsĭbäˈshĕf) [key], 1878–1927, Russian novelist, playwright, and essayist. Artzybashev's early works were short stories in the manner of Tolstoy. His novel Sanine (1907, tr. 1914) created a sensation and was proscribed as pornographic in many countries. When the Sanine cult subsided, he tried to maintain his popularity with similar works, e.g., the novel Breaking-Point (1912, tr. 1915). Artzybashev bitterly attacked the Bolsheviks from abroad.
