Is poetry lost in translation, or is it perhaps the other way around? Is it found? Gained? Won? What happens when a poet decides to give his favorite Russian poems a new life in English?

Alexandra Berlina, herself a poetry translator and a 2012 Barnstone Translation Prize laureate, addresses these questions in this new study of Joseph Brodsky, whose Nobel-prize-winning work has never yet been discussed from this perspective.The poetry of Alexander Blok and his fellow Symbolists is often incantatory; rhyme and rhythm draw still more attention to themselves ... she and a cellmate were between them able to recite most of Nikolay Nekrasova#39;s Russian Women, a poem of at least two thousand lines. Ten years later, imprisoned for a second time, Gagen-Torn ... Moscow: Vozvrashchenie, p.109 audiences in Soviet football stadiums.
