Editorial Reviews


"Kibirov has a special talent for balancing between the optimistic, straightforward, and simple Soviet 'romanticism', literary romanticism … and an individual human existence lost and devaluated." --Marina Grishakova, Timur Kibirov's Poetry in the Official Culture

[Elena Shvarts] is a prolific, compelling poet who mixes the skepticism of post-modern sensibilities with the haunted primitivism of ancient Slavic folk belief." --poetrymagazines.org.uk

"[Sergey Gandlevsky] is a poet of hard-won clarities, of classical formal concision combined with vernacular swagger. Gandlevsky, with his pugilist stance and lyric heart, is a major discovery." --David Wojahn
