Maps: museums, statues and memorials

As part of our thinking about canonicity, we thought it might be interesting to see how and where poets are memorialised. The Google maps below chart the locations of museums, statues and memorials that are dedicated to remembering and commemorating Russian poets of the twentieth century.

At the moment we’re working on Moscow and St Petersburg, but we hope to be able to add commemorative sites across Russia in the near future. The blue markers are for museums; the pink for statues; and the turquoise for plaques. Roads named after poets are in red. We’ll be adding more markers to the pages over time.

Credit for information on the location of some of these plaques is due to John Freedman, writing for The Moscow Times, in his articles ‘Seeing Past the Present, Parts One, Two, and Three’.
