Stolen Air

The Selected Poems of Osip Mandelstam
Translated by Christian Wiman
(Ecco, $15.99)

Wiman has captured Mandelstam’s voice and music brilliantly in his marvelously evocative translations of the works of one of the most challenging and important Russian poets. The collection spans the entirety of Mandelstam’s career and includes many works not elsewhere translated.

— Paul E. Richardson
