stam in 1965. Now, thank you largely to Professor Brown’s great
pioneering paintings, Mandelstam has finally completed critical popularity.
Professor Brown writes in his creation to this new, extended edi­
tion of Mandelstam’s prose: “ Unmentionable in his personal nation and
once all yet unmentioned overseas, Mandelstam is now nearly un­
avoidable. Studied, taught, anthologized, even imitated, he has came across
with striking rapidity that ‘reader within the future’ for whom he constantly
conceived himself to be writing.”

years in St. Petersburg; “ The Egyptian Stamp,” a brief tale with
echoes of Gogol and Dostoevsky; “ Theodosia,” a memoir of the Cri­
mea; and items further to this version, “Journey to Armenia,” a
travel magazine with faintly political overtones; and “ Fourth Prose,” a
stunning paintings of invective and outrage responding to the respectable cam­
paign performed by way of the kingdom opposed to the writer. beautifully translated
by Professor Brown, the prose works are followed through serious es­
says putting them within the context of Mandelstam’s lifestyles and work.
“ Clarence Brown’s translation of Mandelstam not just provides English
readers the best twentieth-century stylist in Russian yet is additionally one
of the best examples ever of the translator’s paintings: a miracle of accuracy,
tone, and feeling of interval. ” man Davenport
