9781557780041: Esenin: A Life

Esenin, the most popular of all 20th century poets in Russia, is known here chiefly as Isadora Duncan's most colorful lover. This is the first objective and thoroughly researched biography of Esenin. Gordon McVay has had access to unpublished material and has conducted interviews with members of Esenin's circle. Esenin lived in an extraordinary historical period, during the years before and after the October Revolution; he is seen here within the framework of his times. Esenin enjoyed early fame, both in the salons of Petrograd in the cafés of Moscow; alcoholic, paranoid, a poet passed his artistic prime, he died, of suicide, at age 30. The product of 12 years of research, McVay's Esenin correlates the facts of Esenin's biography and elucidates some aspects of Esenin's puzzling and unstable personality. --- from book's back cover
