Page and the Fire : Russian Poets on Russian Poets Paperback / softback


The turbulent lives and fates of the Russian people in the first half of the twentieth century are reflected and concentrated in the lives and works of the poets.

Whether exiled in Paris or existing precariously in Moscow, whether banished to some Siberian hard labour camp or living in poverty in some other isolated wilderness, an intangible web of interrelationships seemed to bind their destinies to one another.

This book is an exploration of that web, and provides a unique insight into the remarkable constellation of poets who emerged to create Russia's 'Silver Age' of poetry, and who continued its development through the twentieth century.
