Collected prose works by one of Russla's towering literary figures; Osip Mandelstam has in recent years come to be seen as a central figure in European modernism. Though known primarily as a poet, Mandelstam worked in many styles: autobiography, short story, travel writing, and polemic. Mandelstam's biographer, Clarence Brown, presents a collection of the poet's prose works that illuminates Mandelstam's far-ranging talent and places him within the canon of European modernism. This volume includes Mandelstam's ""The Noise of Time,"" a series of autobiographical sketches; ""The Egyptian Stamp,"" a novella echoing Gogol and Dostoevsky; ""Fourth Prose,"" and the famous travel memoirs ""Theodosia"" and ""Journey to Armenia.
