A poet of classical precision and quiet scepticism, Vladislav Khodasevich died in Paris in 1939, having left Russia in 1922 with his partner the writer Nina Berberova. Nabokov considered him the finest Russian poet of his time, but he has been little known in the West. Deleted from history by the Soviet authorities, he has now become highly rated in Russia. Peter Daniels is the first to offer a representative selection of his poetry in English.

Peter Daniels, a published poet himself and proficient in Russian, began translating Khodasevich while holding a Hawthornden Fellowship in 2009. He was first prize winner in the Arvon, Ledbury, and TLS poetry competitions. His collection Counting Eggs was published by Mulfran Press in 2012.

‘Thanks to Peter Daniels, Khodasevich's reputation may now take off among English-speaking readers.’ – G.S. Smith, TLS
