Poetry Book Society Recommended Translation

Elena Shvarts' haunted and demonic St Petersburg is nearer Dostoyevsky's than Akhmatova's and Brodsky's.

Her poetry draws backwoods Russian folklore with its cruelty, its religiosity and its quaint humour, into stone, cosmopolitan Petropolis.

Russian-English bilingual edition.

Translated by Michael Molnar and Catriona Kelly.
