Sergei Esenin

Sergei Esenin (1895–1925), the self-proclaimed “last poet of the village,” registered with tragic awareness the industrialization of the Russian countryside and the political strife following a civil and a world war. His many wives included the American dancer Isadora Duncan, with whom he toured the United States. His growing despair at urban life fed his manic depression and substance abuse, and in December of 1925 he committed suicide by hanging himself from the waterpipes in his room at the Hotel Angleterre in Leningrad. His collected poems was published as The Collected Poems of Yesenin in English by Floridian in 2000. (7/2010)
