Nikolai Pogodin

Pogodin, Nikolai (nyĭkəlĪˈ pəgôˈdyĭn) [key], pseud. of Nikolai Feodorovich Stukalov fyôˈdərəvĭch stōkäˈlôf, 1900–1962, Russian dramatist. Pogodin wrote many colorful, optimistic, and popular plays generally dealing with the theme of man's conquest of the machine. In Tempo (1930, tr. 1936), a play concerning the Five-Year-Plan period, an American engineer helps speed up tractor production. In The Aristocrats (1935, tr. 1937) Pogodin depicts the rehabilitation of criminals in a labor camp. All of his plays are noted for their hearty good humor and reverence for the common man.
