Originally published in 1921, this early anthology of Russian poetry is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. Deutsch and Yarmolinsky present an absorbing collection of some of the work of Russia s greatest poets from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. A concise biography accompanies the poems, making this a comprehensive and informative look at the subject that is thoroughly recommended for inclusion on the bookshelf of any literary historian or enthusiast of Russian poetry. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
