 Not to be confused with his much more talented and famous nephew Alexander Pushkin, author of Eugene Onegin, Vasily Lvovich Pushkin (1766-1830) was a minor poet who wrote light verse in the manner of Horace. His best known and most accomplished work was the comic A Dangerous Neighbour (1811) whose protagonist Buyanov became a household name in nineteenth century Russia. Buyanov is mentioned in Eugene Onegin.
