Nikolai Pogodin (nyĬkəlī´ pəgô´dyĬn), pseud. of Nikolai Feodorovich Stukalov (fyô´dərəvĬch stōōkä´lôf), 1900–1962, Russian dramatist. Pogodin wrote many colorful, optimistic, and popular plays generally dealing with the theme of man's conquest of the machine. In Tempo (1930, tr. 1936), a play concerning the Five-Year-Plan period, an American engineer helps speed up tractor production. In The Aristocrats (1935, tr. 1937) Pogodin depicts the rehabilitation of criminals in a labor camp. All of his plays are noted for their hearty good humor and reverence for the common man.
