It is with great excitement that we bring you today four new poems by the acclaimed contemporary Russian poet Xenia Emelyanova in exquisite translations done by Katherine E. Young. They are musical, mysterious, and sensual—and we’re delighted to have discovered a new favorite poet. We hope you agree.
We’d love to hear from you! Please let us know how you like our posts, or attend, share, and spread the word about our readings. Open your heart to new experiences and the beauty of the world, and celebrate its cultures and new voices with us using #NTM2017. Happy National Translation Month!
