From again cover:

While traveling Riga, Latvia in November 1989, I requested a tender Latvian poet who have been his significant poetic impacts. with out hesitation he replied that he was once most affected through the European-style poetry of Soviet poet Arkadii Dragomoschenko. the answer's outstanding whilst one thinks that on the time Dragomoschenko had now not but released a ebook within the Soviet Union and that just a 12 months prior he have been operating as a coal stoker. yet Dragomoschenko's writing had seemed in numerous magazines and in samisdat guides, and his recognition had already been verified as early as 1983, while American poet Lyn Hejinian, touring with the ROVA Saxophone Quartet, have been brought to Dragomoschenko who used to be defined as a brand new poetic strength in Soviet writing.

The inventive collaboration among poet and translator that as represented in those extraordinary pages of poetry is, as Michael Molnar describes it, "a circulation up and down the registers of discourse and throughout genres" in a poetry as various from conventional Russian poets and the Soviet modernists resembling Yvgeney Yevtushenko and Andrei Voznesenky because the American "Language" poets are from Robert Lowell or "the Beats."

With different modern Soviet poets comparable to Aleksei Parshchikov and Ivan Zhdanov, Dragomoschenko's poetry represents an intensive transformation in modern Soviet writing that demanding situations the poetic artwork within the related method the Futurists linguistically and socially challenged early 20th century art.


The verse assortment Description is the manufactured from a threefold collaboration regarding the ultramodern Soviet poet from Leningrad, Arkadii Dragomoschenko (b. 1946), and translators, his buddy Lyn Hejinian, an American poet, and Elena Balashova, a local Russian speaker residing in California. Michael Molnar, who wrote the creation that precedes Dragomoschenko's preface, makes an attempt to dispel any doubts one may have about the worth of this system of translation, rather within the absence of an accompanying Russian textual content, through praising the translators' paintings as "meticulous" and "inspired" and calling upon American readers to just accept those types as "American poems."

The e-book is split into six sections or teams of poems: "Summa Elegia," "The Islands of Sirens," "Footnotes," "Accidia," "Nasturtium as Reality," and "Kondratii Teotokopulos on the pass Roads waiting for a Guest." a number of the poems first seemed in Nebo sootvetstvii (Sky of Correspondences), the one choice of Dragomoschenko's paintings to be released to date within the Soviet Union. poems are devoted to Hejinian and one to Molnar. "Summa Elegia" is subdivided into elegies with a number of titles. a few poems are interspersed with passages of prose poetry, and "Accidia" has a hugely subjective "note" from the poet.
