Pro Eto - That's What

Vladimir Mayakovsky

Pro Eto - That's What

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.

The Page and the Fire

ed. Peter Oram

The Page and the Fire

In this unique anthology, the great figures of Russia's 'silver age' - Akhmatova, Tsvetaeva, Mandelstam, Pasternak to name but its brightest stars - reveal how they, despite the great geographical and social distances that often divided them, maintained an intimate, almost metaphysical, kind of contact with one another through poems written in homage to (or indeed, in memory of) one poet by another.
