My Discovery of America, Paperback

My Discovery of America Paperback

Part of the Modern Voices series


First complete translation of one of the most fascinating accounts of the leading poet of the Russian Revolutionary period; Touring the United States, by way of an enforced sojourn in Mexico, Russian poet and indefatigable traveller, Vladimir Mayakovsky was able to observe first hand what he considered to be the model for Soviet development.

Although ideologically at odds with much of American culture, and taking every opportunity to propound his own political beliefs en route, he delighted in the creativity and advancement he saw, believing it to be the future for mankind.

His impressions, presented in full here for the first time in the English language, form an inspired series of sketches, thoughts, jottings and poems.
