9780810126572: Nikolai Klyuev: Time and Text, Place and Poet (Studies in Russian Literature and Index)

Nikolai Klyuev: Time and Text, Place and Poet is the first book in English to examine this enigmatic poet's life and work. Klyuev (1884-1937) is an important but not well-understood figure in twentieth-century Russian poetry. The allusions in his work to folklore, mysticism, politics, and religion, in addition to occasionally arcane vocabulary and difficult syntax, require extensive elucidation. Klyuev rose to prominence in the early twentieth century as the first of the so-called "new peasant poets" before being arrested and exiled in 1933, then shot in 1937: a victim of Stalinist hostility to both his cultural ideology and his homosexuality. Makin’s feat is particularly notable because Klyuev was often elusive in his own accounts of his life; a major element of this book is an effort to clarify the poet’s strategies of self-mythologization. Nikolai Klyuev: Time and Text, Place and Poet is an insightful guide to both the life and the work of an important poet still relatively unknown to a Western audience.

Michael Makin is an associate professor of Slavic languages and literature at the University of Michigan. His previous books include Marina Tsvetaeva: Poetics of Appropriation (1994).

Review:

 “Son ouvrage est pionnier en Occident  où l'œuvre du poète, faute d'avoir bénéficié du même engouement que celle de ses  contemporains - Anna Axmatova, Marina Cvetaeva, Osip Mandel'štam, Boris Pasternak -, n'a pas jusqu'alors fait l'objet de monographies." —Institut d'études slaves

“[This] book is a pioneer in the West, where the poet's work, not having received the same enthusiasm as that of his contemporaries—Anna Akhmatova , Marina Tsvetaeva, Osip Mandelstam, Boris Pasternak—has not been the subject of scholarly monographs." —Institut d'études slaves
