Overview

Mikhail Yeryomin: Selected Poems 1957-2009 by Mikhail Yeryomin

"Yeryomin's 'miniatures' thrill by their fierce attention to natural details and by their startling, revelatory juxtapositions. In these deft, astute English translations by J. Kates, Yeryomin's clear-eyed vision arrives intact—luminous, precise, and bracing."—Cyrus Cassells

"Yeryomin, whose name the Russians often mention next to Brodsky, has written the body of work that is inimitable in its scope and range; whose musical and metaphorical textures amaze one not just by what they say, but also what they withhold."—Ilya Kaminsky

Mikhail Yeryomin, born in 1936, lives in St. Petersburg, Russia.

J. Kates is a poet, literary translator, and the president and co-director of Zephyr Press.
