As I Said

Lev Loseff

As I Said

These poems are written from across the poet's life, contemplating his native land of Russia from both a literal and a figurative distance, while at the same time casting a sometimes jaundiced eye on the alien culture of America in which he spent the final years of his life. Loseff's poetry excels in complex imagery, rich literary allusion, and is abundant in formal experiment. Whether absorbed by the world of literature (particularly his fellow poets) or relating real-life experiences, Loseff conjures up a restless and frequently disturbing universe.

Pro Eto - That's What

Vladimir Mayakovsky

Pro Eto - That's What

Aggressive, mocking, tender, full of anguish and anger yet also grimly humorous, 'Pro Eto - That's What' is part love poem, part political diatribe and the most autobiographical of Mayakovsky's works. This new translation, complete with the extraordinary photomontages that Alexander Rodchenko created for this work, confirms Mayakovsky, 70 years after his death, as one of the towering figures of Russian literature.

The Page and the Fire

ed. Peter Oram

The Page and the Fire

In this unique anthology, the great figures of Russia's 'silver age' - Akhmatova, Tsvetaeva, Mandelstam, Pasternak to name but its brightest stars - reveal how they, despite the great geographical and social distances that often divided them, maintained an intimate, almost metaphysical, kind of contact with one another through poems written in homage to (or indeed, in memory of) one poet by another.

Far from Sodom

Inna Lisnianskaya

Far from Sodom

Lisnianskaya is a poet of instinct - lyrical, intense, defiant, tragic - in whose poetry time, death and the need for love are key themes. In Far from Sodom, which spans her poetic output from 1967 to 2003, she writes with tender insight into love and loss in old age, and in particular about her late husband, the celebrated poet Semyon Lipkin.
