Osip Mandelstam’s second collection of poems, Tristia, astonished Russian readers in 1922 with its daring verse forms and meditations on revolution, exile, death and rebirth. Thomas de Waal’s new translation gives English-language reader the chance to experience the entire collection for the first time in a new bilingual edition, published by Arc Publications.
