SERGEI GORODETSKY (1884-1967) began his career as a Symbolist poet, working with themes drawn from Slavic folklore. In 1911 he rejected the mysticism of the Symbolists and, together with Nikolai Gumilyov, founded the Guild of Poets and the Acmeist movement. After the Revolution and Gumilyov’s arrest and execution, Gorodetsky repudiated his former friend and became a Soviet poet.
