Nikolai Klyuev
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Nikolai Klyuev: Time and Text, Place and Poet is the first book in English to examine this important but not well-understood figure in twentieth-century Russian poetry. The allusions in his work to folklore, mysticism, politics, and religion, in addition to occasionally arcane vocabulary and difficult syntax, require extensive elucidation. Makin's feat is particularly notable because Klyuev was often elusive in his own accounts of his life; a major element of this book is an effort to clarify the poet's strategies of self-mythologization. ""Nikolai Klyuev: Time and Text, Place and Poet"" is an insightful guide to both the life and the work of an important poet still relatively unknown to a Western audience.
