Overview

Proudly part of the New Directions Poetry Pamphlets, a collection of Russian masterpieces
Peter France writes in his foreword: “I have always been conscious that Mandelstam was an outstanding figure, arguably the outstanding Russian poet of the twentieth century. This is a personal selection from the poetry — poems that for one reason or another I wanted to translate. I have tried to make it reasonably representative of different strands and periods in his work, with a certain stress on the brilliant and fragmentary Voronezh poems.”

Meet the Author

Osip Emilyevich Mandelstam (1891–1938) was born in Warsaw and grew up in a Jewish family in St. Petersburg. After a nomadic life as a translator and writer of children’s books, marriage to Nadezhda Khazina, and exile, he was arrested, sentenced to hard labor, and died in eastern Siberia, leaving behind some of the most glorious poems and essays ever written.

Peter France has published widely on French, Russian, and comparative literature. New Directions publishes his translations of Gennady Aygi.
