EIMI: A Journey Through Soviet Russia

by

EIMI: A Journey Through Soviet Russia Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Unavailable for more than fifty years, finally returns. While sometimes termed a "novel," it is better described as a novelistic travelogue, the diary of a trip to Russia in the 1930s during the rise of the Stalinist government. Despite some contempt for what he witnesses, Cummings's narrator has an effective, occasionally hilarious way of evoking feelings of accord and understanding. As Ezra Pound wrote, Cummings's Soviet Union is laid "out there pellucidly on the page in all its Slavic unfinishedness, in all of its Dostoievskian slobberyness....Does any man wish to know about Russia? 'EIMI'!"

Synopsis:

A reissue of E. E. Cummings's long-unavailable, yet pointed and moving story of a journey through Soviet Russia.
