MAYAKOVSKY Vladimir Vladimirovich (1893-1930), poet. Studied at Kutais Gymnasium and in the Moscow School for Painting, Sculpture and Architecture. He visited St. Petersburg - Petrograd - Leningrad reasonably frequently in 1912-30, lived there in 1915-19 (7 Zhukovskogo Street - at the flats of O.M. Brik and L.Y. Brik; 52 Nadezhdinskaya Street, memorial plaque; from 1936 named after him Mayakovskogo Street). Took an active part in futuristic disputes and public readings (Brodyachaya sobaka Cafe-Cabaret, Troitsky Theatre, Tenishevsky School and many others), in exhibitions of the Petersburg Association of Artists of the Union of the Youth; contributed to journals Novy Satirikon and Letopis. His Petrograd circle of acquaintances was included D.D. Burlyuk, O.M. Brik and L.Y. Brik, A.E. Kruchenykh, V.E. Meyerhold, A.A. Blok, V.Khlebnikov, M. Gorky, K.I. Chukovsky, I.E. Repin. It was in Petrograd that many of Mayakovsky's works were written and published for the first time (A Cloud in Pants, 1915 etc.), and it is here the tragedy Vladimir Mayakovsky (1913), the play Mystery Bouffe (1918) and other plays were staged. The Petrograd of Mayakovsky's poetry is an abstract image of an urban city, depicted through the tragic view of life possessed by his characters (The Hell of the City, Man, etc.), besides it is a topographically accurate display of revolutionary events (Very Good! and others). The monument to Mayakovsky was placed in the public garden at the corner of Mayakovskogo Street and Nekrasova Street (1976, sculptor B.A. Plenkin, architect V.P. Litvyakov). The Central City Library, a metro station, streets in former Volodarsky Village, Strelna, Pavlovsk and other towns have been named after Mayakovsky.
