About this Item: Promets, Riga, 1924. Soft cover. Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. Latvian language. Octavo 13 x 17 cm. Weight 25 gr. Wrappers, 31 [1] pp. The book is in Fine condition, without any defects, losses, remarks and stains. Present poetry book refers to the author's brightest creation period characterized by destroying of traditional poetic structures, turning to free verse. He experimented with a number of rows, words and lines graphic layout, manipulated placard slogans (obvious impact of Mayakovsky) terrorizing the reader with his fantastic sense of self-righteousness. The Semaphore collection’s most important prose poem Par Dzeju (On Poetry) written in 1921 describes the "new" poetry, that should be created by poets deeply involved in political and social life. This idea became crucial not only for other futurists and modernist poets, but also for the propagandists of proletarian literature in the Soviet Union. The Semaphore also carry out the vision written by Laicens in 1922 in Dzejas principi (Principles of Poetry) - a poetic manifesto, according to which the poetry should be an active fighter and life engine towards certain targets. Struggle for a new content is inconceivable without the struggle for a new form corresponding to it. He urges to reduce to the minimum the use of the epithets, similes, metaphors, simplifying poetical language towards colloquial simplicity, but without reducing poetic imaginary. Poet and writer Linards Laicens (1883-1938) became the central figure of Latvian avant-garde. A participant in the Revolution of 1905–07, he suffered official repression. He was an important organizer of the legal workers’ press and of revolutionary culture in bourgeois Latvia. Since 1920 member of the Latvian Parliament, leader of the communist party. In 1932 he emigrated to the Soviet Union and engaged himself in the process of developing Soviet Latvian literature. During a wave of repression launched against the Latvian community in Russia in 1938 he was imprisoned and shot. Laicens’s writings are imbued with the ideas of revolutionary struggle and hatred for capitalism. He was the editor of two cult leftist avant-garde journals Kreisa fronte (1928-1930) (Left Front) and Tribine (1931-1932) (Tribune). Seller Inventory # 48

Linards Laicens (1883-1938) was one of the leading intellectual forces of the Latvian avant-garde. A leftist, frankly often a propagandist, he was a poet, novelist and essayist who had a strong sense of visual design.

Niklavs Strunke (1894-1966) was one of the leading artists of the Riga avant-garde artists group; a gifted graphic designer, he worked in both conventional and cutting-edge genres. Rare: only one copy found in North American libraries. Seller Inventory # 5500
