The Baryshev family came from peasants, so they did not have the opportunity to educate their son. Grigory Baryshev used to do it on his own at home.
The first publication is the poem "The Life of a Peasant." In the same year, Grigory Baryshev published the verses "Neighbor", "My portrait" and "The cry of the sinner." The other 15 poems were published as a separate book: "Several poems by the peasant Grigory Baryshev," which started with the poem "My Portrait".
