APOLLON (Apollo), a literary journal. It was founded in 1909 by critic S. K. Makovsky, and named after the Ancient Greek God of Sun, Light and Art. In 1909-10 it came out on a monthly basis as a supplement of the Literaturny Almanakh, afterwards with the frequency of ten editions a year. The editorial office was located at 24 Moika River Embankment, later - at 26 Razyezzhaya Street. I. F. Annensky, А. N. the Benois, Vyacheslav I. Ivanov, critic А. L. Volynsky developed the journal's concept. Among others Аlexander А. Blok, V. Y. Bruce, Мaximilian А. Voloshin, М. А. Kuzmin, Nikolay. S. Gumilev, G. I. Chulkov, B. М. Eichenbaum, B. V. Tomashevsky, art critics and artists L. S. Bakst, N. N. Vrangel, М. V. Dobuzhinsky, N. N. Evreinov, V. E. Meyerhold, N. N. Punin contributed to the Apollon. The journal became a discussion panel for contemporary literature, painting, architecture, music, dance, prosody and literary translation issues. The journal published a lot of copies of the works of Russian and international artists and articles about them. The chronicle of Аpollon gives an extensive record of Russian (especially St. Petersburg's) and European contemporary cultural life. Until 1913 Apollon predominantly focused on symbolism; in January of 1913 it published the Manifestos of Acmeism by Gumilev and S. M. Gorodetsky, yet welcoming adherents of various literary trends. The Apollon's editorial office (24 Moika River Embankment; 8 Razyezzhaya Street) used to host meetings of the Society for the Zealots of the Poetic Word (Poetry Academy). In 1917 the printing of Apollon was ceased.
