Catalogue Note

This important collection of poetry contains pieces by Mayakovsky, Khlebnikov, Assev, Kamensky, Pasternak and Brik, also essays by Khlebnikov and Shklovsky, including one on Mayakovsky’s important poems “Oblako v shtanakh [A Cloud in Trousers]". Shklovsky was interested in the Futurists from an academic slant and a year earlier, 1914, he had delivered a famous lecture in the Stray Dog Café in St Petersburg, in which he used the general principles of the evolution of language to argue for the importance of the Futurists’ radical changes and games with language.
