Description Pavel Vasilyevich Annenkov (1812/1813–1887) is known primarily for his outstanding memoirs and as the author of the very first biography of Alexander Pushkin and the editor of Pushkin’s collected works. However, it was his “Parisian trilogy”, or his letters from abroad written in the 1840s, that first made him well-known in Russia as a talented fiction and travelogue writer. This paper presents Annenkov’s view on the revolution of 1948 in Paris. It shows how his portrait of the extreme events contributed to the eventual split of the Russian Westernizers into two wings: moderate (later the Liberals) and radical (later the Democrats). Unlike the other letters that Annenkov sent from Paris, those that commented on the revolution were not published at the time, although their content was widely known among the Westernizers. They first appeared in print ten years later, in the late 1850s and early 1860s, when the Liberals used them as a warning against the radicalism of the young Democrats.
