Osip At his first beseeching look, Makovsky at the Apollon empathically allowed, Osip, the poet (with his mum) had it from the outset he was not bound down, hell bound for Grub Street and, to finish with a flourish, published him at once. To this pat anecdote perhaps concede a little credit; an editor who strikes pure gold admits he’s not the first to know it. But in his quiet, transparent world Osip Mandel’shtam from the start knew heaven is the lifelong house: the hearth of consciousness. Where older heads must take the clues of practical psychologists, jockey with religion’s own touched and tainted saints and prophets, it would appear that Mandel’shtam saw most clearly first of all; trundled off to Vladivostock in a Gulag car, God rest his gentle soul. This, including phrase 'lifelong house', from the introduction to Selected poems, translated by David McDuff.
