A bilingual reading in Russian and English of poetry, with discussion to follow, by four leading Russian poets from points across the geography of the Russian-Speaking world, including Shamshad Abdullaev (Fergana, Uzbekistan), Keti Chukhrov (Moscow), Alexandra Petrova (Rome), and Alexander Skidan (St. Petersburg). The poets will be joined by poet/translators Julia Dasbach (Philadelphia), Kevin M. F. Platt (Philadelphia), Alexandra Tatarsky (New York; Philadelphia) and Matvei Yankelevich (New York).

This reading presents the fruits of an intense workshop on poetic translation that is taking place at the University of Pennsylvania from February 26-28, with support of that University’s Kelly Writers House, Slavic Department, Program in Comparative Literature and a Cross-Cultural Conference Grant sponsored by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
