Scarce collection of poems by one of Russia's most famous literary figures, it was only after Bliznets v tuchakh was published that Pasternak considered writing as a serious career. Both the author and his friend Nikolai Aseev who wrote the preface were relatively unknown at the time and the book was not well received by Maykovsky or the First Journal of Russian Futurists. Pasternak later said that of this criticism that 'everything I did a long time ago was unacceptably revolutionary, overturning all my contemporaries' conceptions of poetry'.
