Overview
In My Discovery of America, now in its first English translation, the leading poet of Revolutionary Russia offers a fascinating account of his travels in the U.S. Touring America, by way of an enforced sojourn in Mexico, Russian poet and indefatigable traveler Vladimir Mayakovsky was able to observe firsthand what he considered to be the model for Soviet development. Although ideologically at odds with much of American culture, and taking every opportunity to propound his own political beliefs en route, he delighted in the creativity and advancement he saw, believing it to be the future for mankind. His impressions, presented here in full for the first time in English, form an inspired collection of sketches, thoughts, jottings, and poems. Vladimir Mayakovsky was the foremost poet of the Russian Revolution of 1917 and one of the founders of Russia's Futurism movement.
