Two Russian Poets

Posted by Eleanor Townsend, on 30 July 2012. Comments: 0

You are warmly invited to join us for an evening of Russian Poetry at The European Bookshop from 7pm

We will explore the contrasting styles of classical – traditional Russian poetry from the established, Muscovite Larissa Miller, verses the modern and innovative poetry of Slava Zaitsev, a retired Russian scientist now living in St. Andrews, Scotland.

We will be joined by Larissa and Slava's translator, David Anderson and Slava Zaitsev himself to give us poetry readings in the original Russian and the translated English. There will also be a question and answer/discussion session in English, and, of course, wine and nibbles will be provided.

The work of each poet is uniquely captivating, charming and beautiful. Bilingual versions of these poems offer excellent teaching materials for schools and universities, and can equally be enjoyed by the individual reader.

So, why not join us to push your lyrical senses and explore contrasting (and sometimes controversial!) themes of poetry in a cosy, friendly environment.

To confirm your attendance, please either email Eleanor Townsend at, confirm on facebook, or telephone our bookshop on 02077345259, or, alternatively just turn up on the night, pull up a chair and enter a world of enchanting Russian Poetry.
