Summary/Abstract: This is an extensively annotated publication of a previously unpublished Vladimir Nabokov’s review “O poezii” (“On Poetry”) written in the end of 1924, and most probably rejected by a Berlin newspaper Rul’. The annotation section of article focuses on the following three obscure Russian poets reviewed by Nabokov: Il’ia Britan (1885—1941), Lev Gordon (1901—1973), and Dmitri Shakovskoi (later Ioann, Archbishop of San-Francisco and Western United States, 1902—1989).
