Poetry reading in both Russian and English, followed by a discussion with the author. Polina Barskova, born in 1976, is widely regarded as one of the most important Russian poets of her generation. Her first book of poems was published when she was still a teenager, and she has released seven volumes since. Last year, Barskova’s latest collection was short-listed for the prestigious Andrei Bely Prize. After receiving a degree in Russian Literature and Classics from St. Petersburg University, she came to the US, where she earned a Ph.D. in Russian Literature from UC Berkeley. Barskova teaches at Hampshire College. She recently published an English-language collection, The Zoo in Winter (Melville House, 2011), translated by Boris Dralyuk and David Stromberg.
