Osip Emilevich Mandelstam was born in Warsaw, Poland, to a wealthy merchant family. He spent most of his early life in St. Petersburg, Moscow, where he attended the prestigious Tenishev School (1900-1907). From 1907 to 1910, he traveled to France and Germany, studying at the Sorbonne in Paris and the University of Heidelberg. He studied Philosophy at the University of St. Petersburg for six years (1911-1917).

Although glad that the Czars were deposed, Mandelstam was initially hostile to the October Revolution of 1917. He briefly worked for the Education Ministry in Moscow in 1918, and made frequent trips to south of the Russian Empire. He viewed the newer poetry with contempt, especially that of Marina Tsvetaeva and Mayakovsky. Only Akhmatova and Pasternak still held his favor.In 1922, Osip married Nadezhda. She was to be his stalwart companion throughout his years of exile and imprisonment. During the mid to late 1920's, Mandelstam earned his daily bread writing children's books and translations of Western literature. In those years, he sought to preserve cultural heritage, hoping to follow in the footsteps of Pushkin. He gained influential enemies within the Kremlin during this time, and tried to escape their reach by traveling to the far reaches of the Soviet Empire. His last major work, published in 1933, was Journey to Armenia.In 1934, Mandelstam published the "Stalin Epigram", a poem which portrayed Stalin in a way that was much less than flattering. As a result, Mandelstam was exiled to Cherdyn, which is east of Kazan and Samarra, somewhere near Perm. He attempted to kill himself, and was sent to Voronezh, near Ukraine. He was arrested for counterrevolutionary activities in the spring of 1938. After confessing to writing "counter-revolutionary" poetry, he was sent to the Gulag Archipelago. He died there, presumably of fatigue and malnutrition. His body was thrown into a mass grave.
