I would like to thank the professors who inspired me:

This page contains an introduction to the Silver Age of Russian Poetry, including information about several major poets of the period, accompanied by English translations of selections of their poetry. Unless otherwise marked, the translations are my own attempts. I have also included information about dealing with the Russian language on the Web.
The term "Silver Age" cannot be pinned down to a specific time frame. It is a term that refers collectively to the artistic movements of the tumultuous years of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries in Russia. Three of these movements that encompassed poetry were Symbolism, Acmeism and Futurism.
