Innokentiy Fyodorovich Annensky (Russian: Инноке́нтий Фёдорович А́нненский, IPA: [ɪnɐˈkʲenʲtʲɪj ˈfʲɵdərəvʲɪtɕ ˈanʲɪnskʲɪj] (listen); 1 September 1855 (N.S.) – 30 November 1909 (N.S.)) was a poet, critic, scholar, and translator, representative of the first wave of Russian Symbolism, although he was not well-known for his poetry until after his death. Sometimes cited as a Slavic counterpart to the poètes maudits, Annensky managed to render into Russian the essential intonations of Baudelaire and Verlaine, while the subtle music, ominous allusions, arcane vocabulary, the spell of minutely changing colours and odours were all his own.
