(Mnemosyne), a Russian literary miscellany published by V. K. Kiichelbecker and V. F. Odoevskii in Moscow in 1824–25 (four volumes in all). Contributors included A. S. Pushkin, A. S. Griboedov, and E. A. Baratynskii. The miscellany reflected the philosophical and aesthetic views of the Decembrists as expounded in Kiichelbecker’s article “On the Direction of Our Poetry, Particularly Lyric Poetry,” and the outlook of the Liubomudry (wisdom-lovers). The issues of Mnemozina were enthusiastically received by the Decembrist critics A. A. Bestuzhev and K. F. Ryleev.
