By Alexander Vvedensky

“Pussy insurrection are Vvedensky's disciples and his heirs. Katya, Masha, and that i are in prison yet I don’t give some thought to that we’ve been defeated.... in keeping with the professional document, Alexander Vvedensky died on December 20, 1941. We don’t comprehend the reason, no matter if it used to be dysentery within the teach after his arrest or a bullet from a shield. It used to be someplace at the railway line among Voronezh and Kazan. His precept of ‘bad rhythm’ is our personal. He wrote: ‘It occurs that rhythms will come into your head, an exceptional one and a nasty one and that i pick out the undesirable one. it is going to be the precise one.’ ... it truly is believed that the OBERIU dissidents are useless, yet they continue to exist. they're persecuted yet they don't die.” — Pussy rebel [Nadezhda Tolokonnikova’s remaining assertion at their
trial in August 2012]

“I raise[d] my hand opposed to concepts,” wrote Alexander Vvedensky, “I enacted a poetic critique of reason.” This weirdly and beautifully philosophical poet used to be born in 1904, grew up in the middle of battle and revolution, and reached his inventive adulthood as Stalin used to be twisting the which means of phrases in ugly and deadly methods. Vvedensky—with Daniil Kharms the main determine within the short–lived underground avant-garde team OBERIU (a neologism for “the union for genuine art”)—responded with a poetry that explodes sturdy that means into shimmering streams of provocation and invention. A Vvedensky poem is sort of a loopy occasion packed with theater, movie, magic tips, jugglery, and feasting. Curious characters look and disappear, euphoria retains corporation with melancholy, outrageous assertions result in epic shouting fits, and maybe all of it breaks off with one lonely individual making a song a song.

A Vvedensky poem doesn’t make a press release. it really is an occasion. Vvedensky’s poetry was  unpublishable in the course of his lifetime—he made a dwelling as a author for kids sooner than loss of life lower than arrest in 1942—and he is still the least recognized of the good twentieth-century Russian poets. this is often his first e-book to seem in English. The translations by way of Eugene Ostashevsky and Matvei Yankelevich, striking poets of their personal correct, are as astonishingly alert and alive because the originals.
