The website Литература (Literatura) is devoted to “the best literature resources of the Russian internet: electronic libraries, book reviews, literary competitions, and much else.” They host the magazine Словесность (Slovesnost’), publish interviews, and—the feature I use most—have an amazing collection of poems by everyone from Margarita Aliger to Aleksandr Yashchin. I suppose most of my Russian-reading audience already knows about it, but there must be some who don’t, and it’s certainly worth highlighting on general principles. (I was inspired to do so by a post on Dave’s Blogo Slovo, reminding me of what a wonderful resource it is.)
