An enchanting collection of the very best of Russian poetry, edited by acclaimed translator Robert Chandler together with poets Boris Dralyuk and Irina Mashinski In the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, poetry's pre-eminence in Russia was unchallenged, with Pushkin and his contemporaries ushering in the 'Golden Age' of Russian literature. Prose briefly gained the high ground in the second half of the nineteenth century, but poetry again became dominant in the 'Silver Age' (the early twentieth century), when belief in reason and progress yielded once more to a more magical view of the world. During the Soviet era, poetry became a dangerous, subversive activity; nevertheless, poets such as Osip Mandelstam and Anna Akhmatova continued to defy the censors. This anthology traces Russian poetry from its Golden Age to the modern era, including work by several great poets - Georgy Ivanov and Varlam Shalamov among them - in captivating modern translations by Robert Chandler and others. The volume also includes a general introduction, chronology and individual introductions to each poet. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

One day I was considering the tale of Sheherazade and the Arabian nights. How difficult would it be to write a thousand and one stories in a thousand and one nights, and keep my head. It took a lot of late nights and coffee, but the goal was accomplished. Then they had to be rewritten and winnowed down. Ray Bradbury is quoted as saying, “Write a short story every week. It’s not possible to write 52 bad short stories in a row”. I hope I haven’t proven Ray Bradbury wrong.

In poems charged with a sense of history and the present moment, the author urges our capacity to think and to feel and to act. Love that is night reminds us of the difficulties of engaging in meaningful activity based on insight: it is not for those 'who congratulate/ the horizons/ of their own truths'. In a range of styles and voices, these poems, sometimes angular and experimental, sometimes breathtakingly lyrical, challenge and illumine our sense of what it is to be in South Africa now.
