This selection of Mayakovsky’s work covers his entire career—from the earliest pre-revolutionary lyrics to a poem found in a notebook after his suicide. Splendid translations of the poems, with the Russian on a facing page, and a fresh, colloquial version of Mayakovsky’s dramatic masterpiece, The Bedbug.
