The Hylaeans were one of the main Futurist groups in Russia. The name came from the area of the Black Sea settled by the forebears of the Greeks, signifying that they looked back to pre-Classical primitive culture.
Livshits' published his first collection of poetry in 1907 (Fleita Marsiya [The Flute of Marsyas]). He also published translations of French poetry and wrote memoirs of the Futurist years, but he later fell foul of the Communist regime and he died in a prison camp in 1937.
The section title for the Burliuk illustrations has a printed dedication: "Ben, I dedicate the drawings to you; don't get cross about the misprint".
