The famous Google search engine celebrated the 131st anniversary of the birth of the Russian writer and poet Boris Pasternak, by decorating his logo with a picture of his picture.
Boris Pasternak was born on February 10, 1890, and died on May 30, 1960. He has many novels, the most famous of which is Doctor Givago, and wonderful poetry collections, most notably “My Sister Life”, which has gained great fame in Russia.
Boris Pasternak was born to a father who works as a painter and a professor at the Art Institute in Russia, and his mother Rosa was a famous pianist, which made him grow up on art and a world open to all cultures from different countries of the world.
On May 30, 1960, the Russian writer Boris Pasternak passed away, after he rejected the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1958.
The idea came to Boris Pasternak during the First World War (1914-1918) when he worked in a chemical laboratory, and he and his wife settled in a small village that included a group of writers and intellectuals, so he wrote his novel, and because she was attacking the iron system in which the Soviet Union was known, he found “Pasternak” Difficulty finding a publisher, which forced him to flee to Italy. Indeed, it was published in 1957, with great success in the West.
A year after publishing the novel, that is, in 1958, Pasternak was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, but he refused it despite his happiness, which he expressed in a letter he sent to the Swedish Academy, due to the great criticism he was subjected to by the Soviet Union.
