This spring’s Russia-related offerings from western publishers has been incomparably rich, particularly in
fiction. So much so that it was impossible to limit this section of the magazine to just a few titles. This, of course, means shorter reviews.
The Selected Poems of Osip Mandelstam
Translated by Christian Wiman (Ecco, $15.99)
Wiman has captured Mandelstam’s voice and music brilliantly in his marvelously evocative translations of the works of one of the most challenging and important Russian poets. The collection spans the entirety of Mandelstam’s career and includes many works not elsewhere translated.
