«Russian fabulist»

Ivan Krylov

Ivan Krylov
(February 13, 1769 - November 21, 1844)
Ivan Andreyevich Krylov is Russia's best known fabulist. While many of his earlier fables were loosely based on Aesop and Jean de La Fontaine, later fables were original work, often satirizing the incompetent bureaucracy that was stifling social progress in his time.
