Описание

Riding behind, or alongside, the great poets I once called the Four Horsemen of the Soviet Apocalypse—Anna Akhmatova, Osip Mandelstam, Boris Pasternak, and Marina Tsvetaeva—is a contemporaneous cavalry that is too little known in the West. Some of these writers have begun to receive literary attention in translation: Nikolai Gumilev and Daniil Kharms, Velimir Khlebnikov and, if mostly by notoriety, Vladimir Mayakovsky. Others await their day in the Western sun. A selection of Vladislav Khodasevich (translated by Peter Daniels) is in the works, and now we have the Selected Prose & Poetry of Mikhail Kuzmin. In the United States, the legalization of same-sex marriage looks to be just around the corner. In Russia, sexual activity between consenting adults of the same sex still counts as criminal activity. Normally, this wouldn’t be a useful or relevant beginning to a review of literary work, but Mikhail Alekseevich Kuzmin’s homosexuality at the beginning of the twentieth century formed an integral part of his literary identity. The position of Kuzmin (1872–1936) in the culture of sexual politics and literature in Russia may perhaps be compared to that of Oscar Wilde in English culture.
