Alexander Efimovich Izmaylov (Алекса′ндр Ефи′мович Изма′йлов, 25 April 1779, Vladimir Governorate, Russian Empire, — 28 January 1831, Saint Petersburg, Russian Empire) was a Russian fabulist, poet, novelist, publisher (Tsvetnik, Blagonamerenny magazines), pedagogue and one-time state official (a Tver and Arkhangelsk Governorates' vice-governor). Lauded for his satirical fables (by, among others, Vissarion Belinsky), Alexander Izmaylov is considered to be the last major literary figure of Russian Enlightenment.
