Vladimir Mayakovsky

Vladimir Vladimirovich Mayakovsky was born in Baghdati, Kutais Governorate, Russian Empire on 19 July1893. He was a Russian Soviet poet, playwright, artist, and actor. 
During his early, pre-Revolution period leading into 1917, Mayakovsky became renowned as a prominent figure of the Russian Futuristmovement, being among the signers of the Futurist manifesto, A Slap in the Face of Public Taste (1913), and authoring poems such as A Cloud in Trousers (1915) and Backbone Flute(1916).
On 14 April 1930  Mayakovsky committed suicide. Even after death his relationship with the Soviet state remained unsteady. Though Mayakovsky had previously been harshly criticized by Soviet governmental bodies like the Russian Association of Proletarian Writers (RAPP), Joseph Stalin posthumously declared Mayakovsky «the best and the most talented poet of our Soviet epoch.»
