Auteur: Triolet, Elsa
Titel: Mayakovsky - Russian Poet
Sub titel: A Memoir
The Russian poet Vladimir Mayakovsky was the author Elsa Triolet's first love. This memoir of him in was written in 1939 - nine years after his suicide aged 36. It reveals a paradoxical character: an enthusiastic womaniser who remained deeply in love with one woman until the day he died; a genius who often played the buffoon; a joyful extrovert so raw and prone to despair that he shot himself through the heart. This volume also includes some verses by Mayakovsky not translated into English.
