About Gleb Struve

Gleb Petrovich Struve (Russian: Глеб Петрович Струве; 1 May 1898 – 4 June 1985) was a Russian poet and literary historian from the Struve family. His father was Peter Berngardovich Struve, and his nephew is another prominent writer, Nikita Struve.

Struve came from St. Petersburg and joined the Volunteer Army in 1918.[1] Later that year he fled to Finland, then to England, where he studied at Balliol College, Oxford until 1921. It was there that he met Vladimir Nabokov with whom he remained on friendly terms and regularly corresponded until the novelist's death. Struve worked as a journalist in Berlin between 1921–1924 and in Paris until 1932.[1]

In 1932, Struve replaced D.S. Mirsky at the University College London's (UCL) School of Slavonic Studies[2], and later moved to University of California, Berkeley.[3] Struve's publications number around 900, including many important editions of works by major Russian authors that were suppressed in the Soviet Union, such as Anna Akhmatova, Nikolai Gumilev, Marina Tsvetayeva, and Osip Mandelstam.[1] --------------------
