Andrei Voznesensky was a Russian poet and public figure, one of the Soviet Union's boldest and most celebrated young poets of the 1950s and 60s who helped lift Russian literature out of its state of fear and virtual serfdom under Stalin. He was also known for the popular rock-opera Juno and Avos, which was made into best-selling video-movie starring Nikolay Karachentsov and Aleksandr Abdulov. Before his death he was both critically and popularly proclaimed "a living classic", and "an icon of Soviet intellectuals."
