Catalogue Note

Shirokov’s collection of poems does not follow the path taken by his fellow Futurists towards radical experimentation with words and verse; instead his poems read more like a manifesto, denouncing the critics of the movement and generally encouraging and praising modern progress, although bemoaning the lack of it in poetry.
