About this title


The trilogy "Chelovekotext (Mantext)" is neither an autobiography, nor a memoir, but the author's life transformed into а narrative, where the past, the present and even the future coexist in unity. In Volume I, the author, a world-renowned poet, describes his boyhood in Soviet Ukraine and Georgia during World War II, followed by his youth in post-Stalin Leningrad, where he began writing poetry. Along with other young Russian poets and his friends such as Naiman, Rein and Brodsky, the narrator tried to bring fresh, new ideas into a stagnating Soviet literature, but their efforts failed repeatedly. Only the great Russian poet Anna Akhmatova gave them moral support until her death. In Volume II, the narrator describes his literary experiments in 1960s and 70s. During this time he fraternized with other unofficial artists and dissidents who were in a similar situation. Publishing his works abroad got him into trouble with the Soviet authorities, with the result that he had to leave his country to seek a new life on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. In Volume III, he tells the readers that after many ups and downs he, finally, adapted to his new life, finding a home, recognition and his own niche in American society. The price $95 for all three volumes.
