About Book

From Library Journal
In the past two decades Mandelstam's reputation has gone from cult worship to canonization as one of the giants of 20th-century world literature. Now, a massive work such as Freidin's may focus on such extraprosodic concerns as the poet's self-identification as a charismatic, quasi-religious figure and the appearance in his work of "the century's central myth of uncertainty and differentiation, the myth of incest." The latter theme is argued assiduously and unconvincingly; nonetheless Freidin's aggregation of scholarship cannot be ignored by other specialists. Unfortunately the book has no value for the general reader, as it skirts the areas of Mandelstam's genius that assure his continuing appeal. Rob Schmieder, Boston
