Verses on the Vanguard: Russian Poetry Today

PUBLISHER Deep Vellum Publishing (02/08/2022)
PRODUCT TYPE eBook (Open Ebook)

Description
Six of the most remarkable contemporary Russian poets present their groundbreaking verse in a bilingual poetry collection published in partnership with PEN America's Writers in Dialogue project.


In 2020, as international travel skidded to a halt, PEN America's Writers in Dialogue project--which opens the exhilarating world of contemporary Russian poetry to American readers by bridging the American and Russian literary communities--went remote, using online connection to foster collaborations between daring emerging or undertranslated poetic voices and dexterous translators.


In this remarkable volume, the Russian poets and American translators who were paired for this initiative present their collaborative work in a bilingual format, along with conversations about the pleasures, challenges, and intimacies of translation. English-reading audiences will have an opportunity to experience the boldness and range, stylistic and thematic, of Russia's vital poetry scene. Featuring Ainsley Morse, Maria Galina, Catherine Ciepiela, Aleksandra Tsibulia, Anna Halberstadt, Oksana Vasyakina, Elina Alter, Ivan Sokolov, Kevin M.F. Platt, Ekaterina Simonova, Valeriya Yermishova, and Nikita Sungatov.

Editor: Barskova, Polina
In her homeland of Russia, Polina Barskova is considered a prodigy, one of the most accomplished and daring of the younger poets. Born in 1976 in Leningrad--now called St. Petersburg, as before--she began publishing poems in journals at age nine and released the first of her six books as a teenager. She came to the United States at the age of twenty to pursue a Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkeley, having already earned a graduate degree in classical literature at the state university in St. Petersburg. Barskova now lives in Massachusetts and teaches at Hampshire College.
