About this item
From the canals of St Petersburg, the steppes of Central Asia, the mountains of the Caucasus, and the landscape of Palestine, this collection from award-winning Russian poet Sergey Stratanovsky is overtly conscious of the continuing dislocations and evolutions of the times. A writer since the late 1960s, Stratanovsky's poetry has changed in form over the years, but always maintained a strong sociological eye and a deeply religious soul. From poems about the Chechen War to poems based on the Old Testament, a constant tension lies in his work between external environments physical, political, sociological and internal landscapes, and his writing is thematically diverse, responding to the myths and folklore of the peoples of Russia and beyond. Complete with an introduction by translator J. Kates, Muddy River brings together the poems from Stratanovsky's previous seven collections, published here in English for the first time.
