(World Poets and Poetry)

In addition to his poetry, Vladislav Khodasevich (kuh-DAY-zah-vihch) published many critical essays and memoirs. The most important of these are collected in Nekropol’ (1939), Literaturnye stat’i i vospominaniia (1954), and Belyi koridor: Isbrannaia proza v dvukh tomakh (1982). His biography of the eighteenth century poet Gavrila Derzhavin (Derzhavin, 1931) is also notable. As is the case with Khodasevich’s poetry, very little of his prose is available in English translation.
