POETRY BOOK SOCIETY RECOMMENDED TRANSLATION

SHORTLISTED FOR THE OXFORD-WEIDENFELD TRANSLATION PRIZE 2014 AND THE ROSSICA TRANSLATION PRIZE 2014

Vladislav Khodasevich, deleted from literary history in the Soviet era because of his emigration in 1922 with his partner Nina Berberova, has since been welcomed in Russia into its 20th-century pantheon of poets. This bilingual edition offers the English-speaking reader the first substantial selection of this intriguing poet. It contains 58 poems, among them 'Sorrento Photographs', one of the great Russian longer poems of the century.

Khodasevich is a modernist yet standing for continuity, relishing the verse forms of Pushkin. In the sound and fury of the 1920s his restrained and understated tone was misunderstood, appearing anachronistic and irrelevant to his contemporaries; today his classical precision and his doubts seem more convincing than their confidence.

'Peter Daniels' admirable versions combine accuracy and fidelity, yet read like real poems written in English.' Ruth Fainlight

'Meticulous and elegant. This translator has found a voice and a tone in English which is as sophisticated and urbane as Khodasevich's own.'. Sasha Dugdale

Mr David Harvey - 23/03/2020

Excellent service in providing a book about a little known poet. Gratefully received.
