Necropolisis an unconventional literary memoir from Vladislav Khodasevich, hailed by Vladimir Nabokov as the greatest Russian poet of our time. In each of the books nine chapters, Khodasevich memorializes a significant figure of Russias literary Silver Age, and in the process writes an insightful obituary of the era.

Written at various times throughout the 1920s and 1930s following the deaths of its subjects,Necropolisis a literary graveyard in which an entire movement, Russian Symbolism, is buried. Recalling Fyodor Sologub, Sergey Esenin, and others, Khodasevich tells the story of how their lives and artworks intertwined, including a notoriously tempestuous love triangle among Nina Petrovskaia, Valery Briusov, and Andrey Bely. He testifies to the seductive and often devastating power of the Symbolist attempt to turn ones life into a work of art and, ultimately, how one man was left to deal with the task of memorializing his fellow artists after their deaths. Khodasevichs portraits deal with revolution, disillusionment, emigration, suicide, the vocation of the poet, and the place of the artist in society. One of the greatest memoirs in Russian literature,Necropolisis a compelling work from an overlooked writer whose gifts for observation and irony show the early-twentieth-century Russian literary scene in a new and more intimate light.
