Mandelstam Variations

Mandelstam Variations

by David Morley

We regret that this title is completely out of stock and no longer available.

Eleven poems in this collection are variations on Mandelstam, based on prose glosses, while the remainder are inspired by fabrication and fictions from Mandelstam's life.

David Morley is sympathetic for his readiness to deal with large matters... an unmistakable integrity.

Bernard O'Donoghue, TLS

David Morley has written a novel as multitudinous and as tragic as those of the Russian masters, but it is a novel about a poet in the very worst of modern times, so he has stripped away the prose. Extremis becomes essence.
