Evgeny Rein is Russia's greatest living poet. Born in 1935, he belongs to that tragic generation of Russian poets who, for decades, went unpublished in the Soviet Union, and did not publish his first book of poems until he was 49. One of Akhmatova's "magic choir" of young Leningrad peots, he was Joseph Brodsky's mentor and lifetime friend.
