GEORGY ADAMOVICH (1892-1972) was a St. Petersburg poet who started out in Nikolay Gumilev’s Guild of Poets. He became one of the most important critics in emigration through the many regular articles he wrote for émigré newspapers and magazines. He was the chief proponent of the so-called “Parisian note” in émigré poetry. Among his critical targets were the young Nabokov and Marina Tsvetaeva. Adamovich was highly critical of his own poetry and published fewer than 140 poems during his lifetime.
