9780062099426 Osip Mandelstam was perhaps the most important Russian poet of the nineteen-hundredsâ€”aÂ crucial instigator of the â€œrevolution of the wordâ€ that took place in early twentieth-century St. Petersburg and a political non-conformist who earned the enmity of Stalin and his totalitarian regime. With Stolen Air, Christian Wiman, editor of POETRY, Americaâ€™s oldest and most prestigious magazine of verse, offers a new selection and translation of Mandelstamâ€™s poetryâ€”from his hard-edged and highly formal early poems to his almost savagely musical later worksâ€”for a new generation to be moved by, marvel at, and appreciate.
