About the Author
Osip Emilyevich Mandelstam (1891-1938) was born in Warsaw and grew up in a Jewish family in St. Petersburg. After a nomadic life as a translator and writer of children's books, marriage to Nadezhda Khazina, and exile, he was arrested, sentenced to hard labor, and died in eastern Siberia, leaving behind some of the most glorious poems and essays ever written.
Peter France has published widely on French, Russian, and comparative literature. New Directions publishes his translations of Gennady Aygi.
