In 1910, Gumilev and Sergei Gorodetskii founded "Tsekh Poetov" from which group evolved the Acmeists. The name refers to the Greek word acme or "best of all ages." Mandelshtam defined their "neo-classical form of modernism" as "a yearning for world culture." They often gathered in The Stray Dog Café in St Petersburg and produced some of the most important Russian poetry of the 20th Century. The fate of these poets was usually tragic: the Cheka executed Gumilev and Mandelshtam died in the Gulag.
