By P. Ferretti

Vasilii Fedorovich Malinovskii (1765-1814) is a reputation which has hitherto lacked precise resonance within the background of Russian tradition. Tt is naturally a reputation identified to all scholars of Alexander Pushkin's biography, for Malinovskii was once the 1st Director of the recent Tsarskoe Selo Lyceum, if, unfortunately, for less than the 1st 3 of the younger poet's years on the college. For these students conversant with the highbrow and literary lifetime of the "beautiful starting" of the reign of Alexander I's reign Malinovskii has his little area of interest for his extraordinary Rassuzhdenie zero mire i voine (1803) and no more for his Osennie vechera (1803), a little-known magazine constrained to a trifling 8 weekly matters and written fullyyt by way of the editor. As regards the of his 'eighteenth-century' Malinovskii, who lived the 1st thirty-five years existence predominantly within the reign of the nice Catherine, little info encumbers the reminiscence of even experts of the interval. certainly, his elder brother, Aleksei Fedorovich (1762-1840), is the prone to be remembered for his literary and translating paintings besides for his later place as Head of the Moscow Archive of the Ministry of international Affairs, which introduced him into touch with Pushkin and, now not without warning, with Karamzin. Karamzin spoke of him as "one of my few previous and real friends", yet one searches in useless for the same accolade for VasiIii Fedorovich.
