Vasilii Fedorovich Malinovskii (1765-1814) is a reputation which has hitherto lacked real resonance within the heritage of Russian tradition. Tt is naturally a reputation recognized to all scholars of Alexander Pushkin's biography, for Malinovskii used to be the 1st Director of the recent Tsarskoe Selo Lyceum, if, unfortunately, for under the 1st 3 of the younger poet's years on the tuition. 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 not more for his Osennie vechera (1803), a little-known magazine constrained to an insignificant 8 weekly matters and written solely via the editor. As regards the of his 'eighteenth-century' Malinovskii, who lived the 1st thirty-five years lifestyles predominantly within the reign of the nice Catherine, little details 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 all at once, with Karamzin. Karamzin pointed out him as "one of my few previous and real friends", yet one searches in useless for the same accolade for VasiIii Fedorovich.
