“Pussy rebel are Vvedensky's disciples and his heirs. Katya, Masha, and that i are in penal complex yet I don’t ponder that we’ve been defeated.... in response to the legit record, Alexander Vvedensky died on December 20, 1941.

A Vvedensky poem is sort of a loopy occasion filled with theater, movie, magic tips, jugglery, and feasting. Curious characters seem and disappear, euphoria retains corporation with depression, outrageous assertions bring about epic shouting suits, and maybe all of it breaks off with one lonely individual making a song a song.
A Vvedensky poem doesn’t make an announcement. it really is an occasion. Vvedensky’s poetry was unpublishable in the course of his lifetime—he made a dwelling as a author for kids earlier than demise below arrest in 1942—and he is still the least recognized of the nice twentieth-century Russian poets. this can be his first publication to seem in English. The translations through Eugene Ostashevsky and Matvei Yankelevich, remarkable poets of their personal correct, are as astonishingly alert and alive because the originals.
