Item description for The Page and The Fire (Arc Translation) by Peter Oram & Peter Oram...
Overview Reveals how the great figures of Russia's 'Silver Age', despite the great geographical and social distances that often divided them, maintained an intimate, almost metaphysical, kind of contact with one another through poems written in homage to one poet by another. The poems range from epigrammatic miniatures to extended ballads.
Publishers Description 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.
