A couple of days ago Anatoly asked his readers for poems they loved by living poets, and as of now at that link there are almost a thousand responses. If you’re a fan of Russian poetry, it’s a free and nearly inexhaustible anthology of what’s going on now.


  1. the anthology is truly amazing – is it time to declare the Fifth Generation in Russian literature? (the Fourth being the children of the Thaw – Akhmadulina, Voznesensky, Rozhdestvensky…)
    Two other things are exciting too: the number of ex-Russia russophonic poets and that most poems ARE in verse – and very good rhymes too.
