Nikolai Gumilev

Nikolai Gumilev (1886-1921), a Russian poet and literary theorist, was a founder and influential proponent of Acmeism, a literary movement emphasizing clarity of expression, vivid imagery based in concrete experience, and respect for the structure and precision of traditional literary craftsmanship. Gumilev's literary and critical writings influenced the development of modern Russian poetry in spite of their repression in the Soviet Union from the time of his execution in 1921 until the mid-1980s.
