A.A.Blok , who lived from 1880-1921, was known for his symbolistic Russian poetry.In the example above, Blok used the symbol of music to represent the voice of the Russian Revolution.

Later styles revolved around themes of romantic conflict. Much of his poetry, especially his later poetry, was quite political.
