SHERSHENEVICH, Vadim Gabrielevich.
Bystr’. Monologicheskaia drama [Rapids. A monological drama].
First edition: a verse drama from the radical young writer. One of 500 numbered copies. During his career, Shershenevich (1893–1942) was influenced in turn by futurism, imagism, and symbolism but ‘in its essentials his poetry did not change with his allegiance to new groups. He always expressed both the angry resentment of the avant-gardist and a lonely sense of alienation from society’ (Bristol, p. 245).
Die Weisheit des Brahmanen, ein Lehrgedicht in Bruchstücken. Erstes [- Sechstes] Bändchen.
First edition of one of the most important poetical works by Rückert, here in the publisher’s attractive original paper wrappers. Rückert’s large output of poetry inspired many composers, among them Schubert (‘Du bist die Ruh’), Schumann (‘Widmung’), and Mahler (‘Kindertotenlieder’ and ‘Rückert-Lieder’). The Wisdom of the Brahmin consists of a large number of poems of varying length, of from 2 to 72 distichs, arranged in 12 books or Stufen.
