9781848610606: Flags

'Flags' was the only volume of poetry published by the Russian emigré poet Boris Poplavsky (1903-1935) during his own lifetime. A significant Surrealist volume, it is one of the "lost" creations of a man who has been called the greatest of the Russian emigré poets. Now recovered by Russian literary experts and re-edited for a new public, Poplavsky is gaining the readership that eluded him in his lifetime. Unusually, this book presents the complete contents of the original volume (Paris, 1933), rather than presenting a Selected or some other overview, and thus opens a window onto a fascinating and unfairly neglected figure.

About the Author:

Boris Poplavsky (1903-1935) was born in Moscow, but emigrated with his family to Paris, via Constantinople, after the October Revolution. He began publishing his work in emigre publications in 1928, and published the collection Flags in Paris in 1931-the only collection of his verse to be published during the poet's lifetime. Something of an eternal student who found it difficult to hold down a regular job, Poplavsky suffered from a neurotic condition and took drugs from an early age. He also lived in Berlin for two years, studying painting. After many years in penury, and after his fiance Natalia Stolyarova returned to the USSR, he died of a heroin overdose in 1935, and is buried in Paris. His work was forgotten for several decades, but has in recent years begun to be reclaimed, starting with the publication of a new edition of Flags in Tomsk. Apart from poetry, Poplavsky wrote a number of essays and articles on religious, literary and philosophical affairs, as well art- and book-reviews. He has been claimed to be the only Russian surrealist, although it would seem more appropriate to classify him as a French surrealist who wrote in Russian, moving easily between the two cultures as he did.
