Words for war : new poems from Ukraine by Oksana (Ed) Maksymchuk( )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The armed conflict in the east of Ukraine brought about an emergence of a distinctive trend in contemporary Ukrainian poetry: the poetry of war. Directly and indirectly, the poems collected in this volume engage with the events and experiences of war, reflecting on the themes of alienation, loss, dislocation, and disability; as well as justice, heroism, courage, resilience, generosity, and forgiveness. In addressing these themes, the poems also raise questions about art, politics, citizenship, and moral responsibility. The anthology brings together some of the most compelling poetic voices from different regions of Ukraine. Young and old, female and male, somber and ironic, tragic and playful, filled with extraordinary terror and ordinary human delights, the voices recreate the human sounds of war in its tragic complexity." - from publisher
Dancing in Odessa by Ilya Kaminsky( Book )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

POETRY TEXTS & ANTHOLOGIES. Surreal enough to be true, these poems waltz through encounters within families and without. The people depicted are in equal measure brutal and tender, in narratives that are strangely innocent, compelling and convincing. The poems draw on archetype and myth, as well as Russian literary figures, in tightly realised domestic settings that invigorate them with a contemporary relevance, with humour and torment, and, all the while, music. Dancing in Odessa was published in the US by Tupelo Press in 2004 and won the Whiting Writer's Award, the American Academy of Arts and Letters' Metcalf Award, the Dorset Prize, and the Ruth Lilly Fellowship given annually by Poetry magazine

Deaf Republic opens in an occupied country in a time of political unrest. When soldiers breaking up a protest kill a deaf boy, Petya, the gunshot becomes the last thing the citizens hear--they all have gone deaf, and their dissent becomes coordinated by sign language. The story follows the private lives of townspeople encircled by public violence. At once a love story, an elegy, and an urgent plea, these poems confronts our time's vicious atrocities and our collective silence in the face of them

She came to the United States at the age of twenty to pursue a Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkeley, having already earned a graduate degree in classical literature at the state university in St. Petersburg. Barskova now teaches at Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts. This is the first book of her poems to be published in English translation. Editor and translator Ilya Kaminsky was born in Odessa, Ukraine, and is author of a bestselling book of poems, Dancing in Odessa (Tupelo, 2004), and co-editor of The Ecco Anthology of International Poetry (HarperCollins, 2010).

A winner of the 2010 National Poetry Series Prize as selected by Ilya Kaminsky (author of Dancing in Odessa, recipient of the 2004 Whiting Award, the Ruth Lilly Fellowship, among other honors, and co-editor of The Ecco Anthology of International Poetry), Vizsolyi's work perpetuates NPS's tradition of promoting exceptional poetry from emerging poets. Kaminksy writes that Vizsolyi's poetry "is erotic the way Catullus was erotic, and Mayakovsky. The voice is arrogant and tender, it goes 'on the nerve, ' as Frank O'Hara told us the poet must. This book with knock your socks off. This is real poetry."
