On the 7th of October Russian Centre of Science and Culture held a poetry evening dedicated to the Silver Age of Russian culture.

At the last decade of the 19th century and first two decades of the 20th century Russian poetry had a second “birth”, which was later called “Silver Age”. Balmont and Sologub, Bryusov and Blok, Gumilyov and Akhmatova, Mandelstam, Voloshin, Tsvetayeva, Severyanin, Yesenin, Mayakovsky and other famous Russian poets wrote their best works during this period.

The evening started with a lecture by the Russian language teacher at the University of Kuala Lumpur Tatyana Rodina about the time frames and trends in the culture of the Silver Age. Then the audience watched a colorful video presentation “Portraits of the Silver Age poets, written by their contemporaries”.

At the poetic part of the evening Russian compatriots and actors of the amateur theatre “The crow” recited their favorite poems written by Nikolay Gumilyov, Anna Akhmatova, Marina Tsvetaeva, Alexander Blok and others.

At the friendly tea party at the end of the evening, guests had an opportunity to exchange their experiences and share their own perception of the Great Russian poets of the Silver Age. The evening was a real festival of the Russian poetry.
