"Never have I wanted to be understood so much as in this poem. It is probably the most serious piece of work I have ever done."Written in 1924, Vladimir Ilyich Lenin crowned a long period of preparatory work on this theme. The poet was fortunate to see and hear Lenin on a number of occasions. During the October days of 1917 he saw Lenin in Smolny, the headquarters of the uprising. Later he heard several speeches by the founder of the Soviet state.Mayakovsky not only strove with the utmost fidelity to depict Lenin as an historic figure in his own words, he "wrote the poem remaining a poet." In Lenin's life and activity he sought solutions to issues that engaged him all his life: man, his destination, his place in the world, his happiness, his struggle and triumph over the tragic in life.He was human - as human as anyone...Mayakovsky gave numerous recitals of his poem both at home and abroad. "The workers' response was heartening, reassuring me in the belief that this poem was needed.""The splendid powerful poem on Lenin's death made an enormous impression on listeners." - Daily Worker, London, 1925

“Nathaniel Mackey's poem is a brilliant renewal of and experiment with the language of our spiritual condition and a measure of what poetry gives in trust-'heart's/meat' and the rush of language to bear it.” —Robin Blaser “Mackey’s raspy rebus-like cultural resurfacings are both beautiful to read and worthy of repeated efforts at comprehension.” —Publishers Weekly

James McGavran’s new translation of Vladimir Mayakovsky’s poetry is the first to fully capture the Futurist and Soviet agitprop artist’s voice. Because of his work as a propagandist for the Soviet regime, and because of his posthumous enshrinement by Stalin as “the best and most talented poet of our Soviet epoch,” Mayakovsky has most often been interpreted—and translated—within a political context. McGavran’s translations reveal a more nuanced poet who possessed a passion for word creation and linguistic manipulation. Mayakovsky’s bombastic metaphors and formal élan shine through in these translations, and McGavran’s commentary provides vital information on Mayakovsky, illuminating the poet’s many references to the Russian literary canon, his contemporaries in art and culture, and Soviet figures and policies.

One of Russia's greatest poets, Vladimir Mayakovsky (1893-1930) was a Futurist, early Bolshevik, and champion of the avant-garde. Despite his revolutionary youth, he became increasingly disillusioned with Soviet society, and three of his plays--all banned until after Stalin's death--reflect his changing assessments of the Revolution. Mayakovsky: Plays includes Mystery Bouffe, a mock medieval mystery written in 1918 to celebrate the first anniversary of the Revolution; The Bathhouse, a sharp attack on Soviet bureaucracy subtitled "a drama of circus and fireworks"; and The Bedbug, in which a worker with bourgeois pretensions is frozen and resurrected fifty years later, when the world has become a material paradise. The collection also includes Mayakovsky's more personal first play, Vladimir Mayakovsky: A Tragedy.

Aggressive, mocking, tender, full of anguish and anger yet also grimly humorous, Pro Eto - That's What is part love poem, part political diatribe and the most autobiographical of Mayakovsky's works. This new translation, complete with the extraordinary photomontages that Alexander Rodchenko created for this work, confirms Mayakovsky, 70 years after his death, as one of the towering figures of Russian literature.

Renowned Soviet writers, Maxim Gorky, Vladimir Mayakovsky, Alexei Tolstoy and Konstantin Fedin reveal their unique experiences in their career. They provide a sound knowledge in all forms of the art of writing, how to write prose, the short stories, novels, verses and more. You can learn also how Soviet writers suffered when a decree declared their writing the property of the Republic, and the hardships they encountered during the Revolution and in Hitler's time to get their stories in print. This challenged them to pursue with a vengeance to get their stories printed regardless of the availability of supplies.Above all, these writers had stories to tell, they wanted the public to be aware. In this way a writer finds inspiration, the right words, the earnest desire and the motivation to undergo this chosen field that leaves to the rest of the world long after they are gone, with knowledge, a past and a heritage.Thus, writing is finding yourself, your methods, your individuality and your creativeness. Style is the most important. If a writer does not have style he cannot write. Rhythm, melody, vocabulary, and composition are interconnected like chess pieces. Above all, writing should not be an obsession but the only way in which you can create your work.

Whimsical and revolutionary poems and art by some of Russia's foremost avant-garde writers and illustrators A boy wants a toy horse big enough to ride, but where can his father find it? Not in the stores, which means it’s got to be built from scratch. How? With the help of expert workers, from the carpenter to the painter, working together as one. And now the bold boy is ready to ride off in defense of the future! Two trams, Click and Zam, are cousins. Click goes out for a day on the tracks and before long he’s so tired he doesn’t know where he is or how to get back. All he knows is he’s got to find Zam. Click is looking for Zam and Zam is looking for Click, and though for a while it seems like nobody knows where to find Click, good and faithful Zam is not to be deterred. Peter’s a car, Vasco’s a steamboat, and Mikey’s a plane. They’re all running like mad and going great guns until, whoops, there’s a big old cow, just a plain old cow, standing in the road. What then? The early years of the Soviet Union were a golden age for children’s literature. The Fire Horse brings together three classics from the era in which some of Russia’s most celebrated poets, Vladimir Mayakovsky, Osip Mandelstam, and Daniil Kharms, teamed up with some of its finest artists, Lidia Popova, Boris Ender, and Vladimir Konashevich. Brilliantly translated by the poet Eugene Ostashevsky, this is poetry that is as whimsical and wonderful as it is revolutionary.
