THB END OF OLD MUSCOVY: AVVAKUM Before it came to an end, Old Russian civilization found something like its final and definitive expression in two very dissimilar but, in a way, complementary figures--Tsar Alexis and Archpriest Avvak

During his last years Derzhavin's lyric genius remained almost undiminished, and when he died, in 1816, his last lines, the splendid opening stanza of an THE AGE OP CLASSICISM 51 Ode on Mortality, bad just been jotted down on a slate. Derzhavin's work is almost exelusively lyric. His tragedies, written in his later years, are negligible. His writings in prose are more important. The Essay on Lyric Poetry is a remarkable piece of uninformed, but inspired, criticism. The commentary he wrote to his poems is full of delightfully quaint and illuminating details.

Along with these first essays in edifying narrative other types of fiction began to appear. It is probable that Russian narrative folk poetry as we now know it came into existence in the middle or second half of the sixteenth century. It is certain that its first written traces appear in the early seventeenth century, when it begins to exercise an appreciable influence on written literature. We have seen its influence in the Siege of Az6v. It is still more unmistakable in the story of Woe-Misfortune ( G6reZloschcistie), which is an isolated instance of the use of actual folk-song meter in a literary work.
