The twelve letters that constitute this volume were exchanged by two of Russias leading intellectuals, who, in the summer of 1920, weakened by the privations of the Civil War, were admitted to a municipal rest home outside Moscow. At the SanatoriumMoreThe twelve letters that constitute this volume were exchanged by two of Russias leading intellectuals, who, in the summer of 1920, weakened by the privations of the Civil War, were admitted to a municipal rest home outside Moscow.

At the Sanatorium for Scientific and Literary Workers, they found themselves installed in opposite corners of the same room.Day-long conversations having drawn them away from their literary tasks, the two then decided to converse in writing. Correspondence, the result, examines the condition and future of Western culture-whose values, according to the historian Gershenzon, have deteriorated into a deadly burden upon mankind, into mankinds ultimate prison.

For the poet Ivanov, it is not the disavowal of a cultural heritage but the struggle to recover mans own unity with God that alone guarantees his true, his spiritual freedom.
