Book Review: Writings From the Golden Age of Poetry

Writings from the Golden Age of Russian Poetry

by Konstantin Batyushkov

Columbia University Press

Multicultural Interest , Poetry

Pub Date 28 Nov 2017

I am reviewing a copy Of Writings From The Golden Age of Poetry through Columbia University Press And Netgalley:

Writings from the Golden Age of Russian Poetry talks about and showcases the life and work of Konstantin Batyushkov, who was popular in the early nineteenth century. His poetry was famous for its musicality and earned him the respect and admiration of Alexandr Pushkin. This book not only talks about his career not only as a poet, but as a diplomat as well as a soldier and about his decline into mental illness at only thirty four.

His work both in verse and prose embodied many aspects of life. His work spans the Napoleonic wars and the rapid social as well as literary change from Catherine the Great and Nicolas the First.

I give Writings From the Golden Age of Russian Poetry five out of five stars!
