Russian Poetry, November 2018

Poems by Pushkin, Lermontov and Yesenin—read in Russian (by genuine Russian speakers) and in English translation (by genuine English speakers)—highlighted our Russian Poetry evening in November. For those of us hearing Russian poetry in Russian for the first time, the language is a revelation: fluid and melodious. The English renditions weren’t bad either. More Russian poetry evenings are being scheduled.

Nearly 20 poetry lovers—a mix of  bona fides and wannabes—attended our recent reading, and every guest doubled as a reader.   Photo: Robert Liebman
