QUIZ | Which Wacky 20th Century Russian Author Are You?

Psst. Found this online. Think of it as a run-up to the Russian Reading Challenge. Oddly, I have no Mayakovsky on my list to read. I should look into this.

Which wacky 20th century Russian author are you?

You are VLADIMIR MAYAKOVSKY. You brood, and look sexy while doing it. Futurism and surrealism appeal to you. As a young artiste you pulled pranks like throwing tea at your audiences. You really like your friend Brik's wife, so youll write her an epic poem deemed "the most savage indictment of a woman in our time." A couple years after the October Revolution, no one will praise your work anymore, and your crappy love life will make you depressed.

So, sadly, you'll commit suicide.

Take this quiz!

I got the same result. I've never even heard of this author before.

I got Akhmatova! (of course, I just clicked answers randomly...) I was clued in to the Akhmatova answer by the Mogdiliani reference.
