A well written depiction of a dark time in Russian history
The Stalin Epigram is a highly imaginative enjoyable story about an amazing hero-poet seldom heard of in the west - Osip Mandelstam. Osip was a visionary that foreseen the monster Stalin would soon become, something no one else of his day had yet to fully realize. At times The Stalin Epigram takes liberty's in its fictional depiction that seem rather farfetched but overall the historical setting and depiction of his close poet friends Anna Akhmatova and Boris Pasternak make for a great read!Was this review helpful?
