This book presents sixteen leading poets of the "Silver Age" or Russian poetry, so called only because the designation of "Golden Age" already belonged to the age of Pushkin.This book is addressed mainly to a reader who does not read Russian, but takes an interest, academic or otherwise, in Russian poetry and would like to learn more about it than could be learned from an anthology or from a history of Russian literature. Enough poems by each poet are presented to give the reader an idea of the poet's main topics, devices, and idiosyncratic poetic vision. Enough biographic, literary, and contingent background is provided to facilitate the understanding of each poem.
