Collected prose works by one of Russla's towering literary figures; Osip Mandelstam has in recent years come to be seen as a central figure in European modernism.

This volume includes Mandelstam's ""The Noise of Time,"" a series of autobiographical sketches; ""The Egyptian Stamp,"" a novella echoing Gogol and Dostoevsky; ""Fourth Prose,"" and the famous travel memoirs ""Theodosia"" and ""Journey to Armenia.
