When the Tehran mob broke into the Russian embassy and murdered its diplomats, one of the victims included the most brilliant and promising stars in the early 19th-century Russian literary and political firmament: Alexander Griboyedov. In this first biography of Griboyedov in English, Laurence Kelly paints a vivid picture of his remarkable literary and diplomatic gifts which were nevertheless overshadowed by tragedy. His book makes an invaluable contribution to the diplomatic history of Russia, the Caucasus, and Iran, while at the same time shedding much new light on the life and works of a writer and diplomat of considerable importance.
