Unsystematic Contemporary Poetry Course. Part One


The Yasnaya Polyana Museum and the publishing house Novoye Izdatelstvo are starting a series of meetings with contemporary Russian poets. We offer our audience the chance to get acquainted with the work of authors who belong to different generations, use various social strategies, and create various poetical languages.

These meetings are an attempt to answer the following question: what is happening to Russian poetry today, after artistic discoveries of the 20th century, after Auschwitz, after the break-up of the Soviet Union and the widespread adoption of the Internet? Who needs poetry and why, and how can it be made part of one’s own world?

Leo Tolstoy‘s life and work is a constant, unending musical story. In Tolstoy’s texts, music is an important component which is essential for the fuller characterization of a character or epoch, and at times even the main character of the work, as is the case, for example, in Albert or The Kreutzer Sonata. In the writer’s life, music was “a great and impenetrable mystery,” and “the art of conveying and reproducing one's state of mind.”
