Summary

Slutsky's poetry and prose paint a gripping portrait of a highly intelligent and articulate Soviet patriot passing through the dynamism and terror of the 1930s; a twice-wounded political instructor fighting for the motherland in World War II; an increasingly skeptical witness to the re-Stalinization of Russia during the cold war; and an ironical observer of the 1960s youth culture poetry and finally of the decline of the Communist ideal into senility during the Brezhnev era.
