    We live, not sensing our own country beneath us,Ten steps away they dissolve, our speeches,But where enough meet for half conversation,The Kremlin hillbilly is our preoccupation.They re like slimy worms, his fat fingers,His words, as solid as weights of measure.In his cockroach moustaches there s a hintOf laughter, while below his top boots gleam.Round him a mob of thin necked henchmen,He pursues the enslavement of the half men.One whimpers, another warbles,A third miaows, but he alone prods and probes.He forges decree after decree, like horseshoes In groins, foreheads, in eyes, and eyebrows.Wherever an execution s happening though there s raspberry, and the Ossetian s giant torso.This is the Stalin Epigram , written by the poet Osip Mandelstam in 1933 He recited it to a small circle of friends, one of whom was a rat He and most of the other friends were arrested that same year By some miracle or some intervention from friends in the Kremlin Mandelstam was not executed for this blasphemy against the dictator He and his wife were exiled into the Urals, but then even that comparatively mild sentence was commuted to banishment...

    Only a process that is very beautiful and very terrible could produce this book the anguish of two human souls being tormented by a cruel, fiendishly clever, and virtually all powerful State determined to murder both the body and soul of its victims Whether we deserve to benefit as readers from the terrible tempering endured by the poet Osip Mandelstam and his widow Nadezhda Mandelstam is a matter that can be easily determined we do not deserve it We are not worthy of the Mandelstams They belong to a very select group of all the human beings who have ever lived, most of whom we will never know Thanks to her memoir, we do know Nadezhda and Osip.If Osip s great characteristic was his commitment to truth, Nadezhda s was her endurance if this sounds dismissive recall that the New Testament repeatedly includes endurance as one of a short list of authentic signs of the divine Spirit Her survival made possible the survival of most of Osip s poetry, and of the story of their lives, preserved in this unique memoir Wordsworth defined po...

    Unlike many wives of famous husbands who tend to emphasize that their husbands would ve been nothing without their love and support or their vanity let s call a spade a spade , Nadezhda Mandelstam wrote an absolutely heartbreaking and devastating chronicle of her husband s life which she happened to share as a fellow traveller and devoted supporter, not as a glamorous muse Her immense talent of a storyteller makes her memoirs a lot than just memories of Mandelstam and their life Nadezhda Mandelstam tells the story of the whole generation, utterly lost and deliberate...

    Utterly heartbreaking An essential witness Anticipating his arrest M obtained a copy of the Divine Comedy in small format and always had it with him in his pocket, just in case he was arrested not at home but in the street And after his death or even before it, perhaps he lived on in camp legend as a demented old man of seventy who had once written poetry in the outside world and was therefore nicknamed The Poet And another old man or was it the same one lived in the transit camp of Vtoray...

    A remarkable book so far Mandelstam landed in hot water for this poem on Stalin which is sometimes called the Kremlin Mountaineer We live, deaf to the land beneath us,Ten steps away no one hears our speeches,All we hear is the Kremlin mountaineer, The murderer and peasant slayer His fingers are fat as grubs And the words, final as lead weights, fall from his lips, His cockroach whiskers leer And his boot tops gleam Around him a rabble of thin necked leaders fawning half men for him to play with The whinny, purr or whine As he prates and points a finger,One by one forging his laws, to be flung Like horseshoes at the head, to the eye or the groin And every killing is a treat For the broad chested Ossete Update 7 2 09 Whew Hope Against Hope is one of the great witness books of the last century I ve been meaning to turn to it for years, intrigued by the literary friendship between the two great Russian poets, Mandelstam and Anna Akhmatova, as recounted in Roberta Reeder s biography on Akmatova Current events in Iran finally pushed me onward Well, I was not disappointed, since Mandelstam s wife, Nadezhda, was a great writer herself So much so, that this story, meant to preserve the memory of her poet husband, becomes equally her story And her voice, as an indictment of Stalin and his system, is every bit as p...

    Mandelstam s memoir of her and her husband s life in Soviet Russia between 1934 and 1938, between which times he is twice taken into the Gulag, the second time fatally, is among the best and most powerful of nonfiction books It is not only a unique and exceptionally frank personal testament but a work of art.Nadezhda means hope in Russian, which makes the title a wryly ironic pun Mandelstam s wit and resilience are the twin beacons that light this memoir of life in a relentlessly dark time The memoir starts After slapping Alexei Tolstoi in the face, M immediately returned to Moscow M is Osip Mandelstam and the book s immersive brilliance begins with that startling sentence and continues throughout In recounting M s subsequent order into exile, on which his wife was allowed to accompany him, the order included a visit from the secret police to their home M was out The agents seized a bunch of manuscripts, not all or even most but the visit was designed to unsettle Mandelstam writes about the visit If M had fallen into the hands of our agents, they would have hauled him off together with our manuscripts He was lucky Just as he was also lucky not to survive till the next wave of arrests and die in his bed or a hospital ward in Chukhloma or some other such place he was allowed to live in Like the dramas of family life, this was normal and hence could be regarded as happi...

    If you are anything like me, you ll start to feel pretty bad about eating while reading Hope Against Hope even drinking tea starts to feel like you re mocking Mandelstam and her friends Look at me, sitting here in my capitalist comfort, my hybrid bourgeois intelligentsia existence, with the air conditioning on and very little chance of being arrested How can I stand myself So, yeah, it took me a while to get through this Partly because it s loosely structured, so sometimes it s hard to follow the timeline But man, it s worth it I haven t read any of Osip Mandelstam s poetry, and tbh, I m probably not going to now because poetry in translation is a misery But Nadezdha is a supremely interesting memoirist, sensitive and observant,...
