PRESENTATION COPY WARMLY INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR ON HALF TITLE to publisher Samuil Mironovich Alyanskii and dated December 21, 1921: "To Samuil Mirinovich Alyanskii, with greetings and as a reminder to a dear publisher that I am still alive and writing." F. K. Sologub was an important Symbolist writer and the main proponent of the fin-de-siecle movement in Russia. He was also a journalist and lectured widely both in Russia and abroad. His work was often morbid and pessimistic but very popular. Although he welcomed the February Revolution of 1917, he was blacklisted for his anti-Bolshevik stance after the October Revolution; and he applied to Lenin personally to allow him and his wife to emigrate in 1919. It was over a year and half before Trotsky authorized their departure. With the introduction of Lenin's New Economic policy, his work was once more allowed to be published. But two days after he signed this copy of Odna liubov and two before they were set to leave, his despondent wife threw herself off a bridge. The poet never fully recovered from her suicide. He died in Leningrad.
