Another NTM premiere: a gorgeous selection of poems from two beloved Ukrainian poets, Hryts’ko Chubay and Kateryna Babkina, translated by the accomplished Oksana Rosemblum. Hryts’ko Chubay is practically unknown to the Western reader, while Kateryna Babkina is a young poet who is already known in the West, especially in Europe. These tremendous poems in two very different voices grab the reader and don’t let go. We are so happy they found their way to NTM, and we’re so excited to share them with you.
