The Acmeist poets Gumilyov, Akhmatova, and Mandelstam brought a new clarity and vigor to Russian poetry and laid down a canon for its further development. Leonid Strakhovsky’s essays on the three poets, together with his translations of forty of their poems which have not appeared previously in English, do much to contribute to our understanding of contemporary Soviet poetry and modern Russian literature as a whole.
