Literary Birthdays for February 10th

Boris Pasternak was born on February 10, 1890 in Moscow, Russia and died on May 30, 1960 in Peredelkino, U.S.S.R. Nobel laureate Boris Pasternak was highly regarded in his native Russia as one of the country's greatest post revolutionary poets. He did not gain worldwide acclaim, however, until his only novel, Doctor Zhivago, was first published in Europe in 1958, just two years before the author's death.
