Mikhail Katkov

Katkov, Mikhail Niklforovich


Born Nov. 1 (13), 1818, in Moscow; died July 20 (Aug.l), 1887, in the village of Znamenskoe, in present-day Lenin Raion, Moscow Oblast. Russian journalist and publicist.

The son of a minor civil servant, Katkov graduated from Moscow University in 1838 and attended lectures at the University of Berlin in 1840 and 1841. In the 1830’s he was a member of the N. V. Stankevich circle and was close to V. G. Belinskii, A. I. Herzen, and M. A. Bakunin. He worked on Moskovskii nabliudateV in 1838 and 1839 and on Otechestvennye zapiski from 1839 to 1841. In the early 1840’s, Katkov broke his old literary connections. Although in the 1840’s and 1850’s Katkov had been a liberal and admired the British political system, by the early 1860’s he had become a stark reactionary. Editor of the newspaper Moskovskie vedomosti from 1850 to 1855 and from 1863 to 1887 and publisher of the journal Russkii vestnik from 1856 to 1887, Katkov became one of the most influential publicists. In 1863, after the uprising in Poland, he joined the camp of the reactionary nobility, championing nationalism and chauvinism and heaping slander upon the democratic movement and progressive literature. A. I. Herzen, N. G. Chernyshevskii, and M. E. Saltykov-Shchedrin fought against Katkov, who was the behind-the-scenes instigator of the reactionary policies of Alexander Ill’s government.

(7) But could we, in 1878, blame the insufficiency of suitable statesmen in national politics when our government and society possessed people of such orientation and such capability as Skobelev, (8) Ignatiev, (9) Aksakov, (10) Katkov? (11) But when even with capable people a nation turns out to be incapable, when her military victories are followed by the internal decline of energies and a great historical cause falls from its hands, only two suppositions are possible: either this people has completed the circle of its historical activity and has entered into the epoch of decline and fall or it has, in some way, been unfaithful to its true vocation and faces, in the immediate challenges which it sets for itself, some internal contradiction, some kind of falsehood.
