Mikhail Kuzmin

1 contribution found for Russian Life and/or Chtenia.

(1872-1936) was a Silver Age poet, musician and novelist. Born to nobility, he studied music under Rimsky-Korsakov (leaving it for poetry) and was influenced greatly by his travels to the Middle East and Northern Russia. Openly homosexual, he did not find the freedom he longed for in the new Soviet society. His classical, “emotionalist” verse found little resonance with the Soviet state, causing the poet to withdraw from the public eye.
