COLLECTION OF POEMS
BY

Nikolay Gumilev

Nikolay Gumilev

(Born 1886, Died 1921)

(Translations from Russian)



Nikolay Gumilev was one of the founders of the Acmeist movement. Much of his early verse was inspired by his travel in Africa and is marked by a liking for the exotic and a cult of heroism and adventure. Between 1910 and 1918 he was married to the poetess Anna Akhmatova. He fought with distinction in the First World War, and become openly anti-Bolshevik after 1917. Accused of conspiracy against the Soviet Government, he was shot by a firing squad. His later poetry is more earnest and tragic, with flashes of prophetic intuition.
