    1917: Stories and Poems from the Russian Revolution is a collection of literary responses to one of the most cataclysmic events in modern world history. These expose the immense conflictedness and doubt, conviction and hope, pessimism and optimism which political events provoked among contemporary writers - sometimes at the same time, even in the same person. This dazzling panorama of thought, language and form includes work by authors who are already well known to the English- speaking world (Bulgakov, Pasternak, Akhmatova, Mayakovsky), as well as others, less well known, whose work we have the pleasure of encountering here for the very first time in English...Edited by Boris Dralyuk, the acclaimed translator of Isaac Babel's Red Cavalry and Odessa Stories (also published by Pushkin Press), 1917 is an anthology for everyone: those who are coming to Russian literature for the first time, those who are already experienced students of it, and those who simply want to know how it felt to live through this extreme period in history.
