Hello, dear visitor of our site!
The website is devoted to the public organization “Batyushkov Society”, which has recently celebrated its 17th anniversary!
All these years we were engaged in popularization of the life and literary works, as well as the perpetuation of the memory of an outstanding poet of “Pushkin Epoch”, our patriot K.N. Batyushkov.
We are sincerely convinced that K.N. Batyushkov showed the way of serving to the duty of a citizen, a writer, a warrior and a defender of his Motherland not only to Russia but to the whole world.
His works, relying on the roots of the best achievements of world literature, contributed greatly to the development of the Russian language. His literary works contain remarkable examples of poetry and prose, and his life had long ago become the embodiment of elevated Patriotic feelings for many people.
The words of the Nobel Prize winner J. Brodsky that “Batyushkov was enormously underestimated both by contemporaries and at present time…” gave the organization an additional stimulus for continuing its work. In our public activity we aim to make literary works of K.N. Batyushkov a deserved object of the educational process. We want “the heart’s memory” to remember Batyushkov's “both life, and love for the Motherland”. And we will be glad if you, dear reader, are on our way!
