A tight, clean, sound copy in color wraps with minor overall shelf wear plus three dogeared pages. The author is a Russian "superpoet" of the 1960's, 70's and 80's. He was worshipped by millions of Russians who packed soccer stadiums to hear him recite his ringing, defiant verse. He was even able to daunt the KGB into attempts to flatter and co-opt him. Translated from the Russian with an introduction by Robin Milner-Guilland and Peter Levi, S.J. A book in the Penguin Modern European Poets series. 92p.. Mass Market Paperback. Very Good/No Jacket as Issued. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall.

The work of Russia’s best-known post-Stalin poet YEVGENY YEVTUSHENKO blazed a trail for a generation of Soviet poets, leading Russia to new heights of artistic achievement in the twentieth century. With a confident poetic voice that moves effortlessly between social and personal themes, he describes his idyllic childhood in Serbia, his impressions of home after a long absence in Moscow, his joy upon discovering the unexpected in a lover, his chance meeting with Hemingway in Copenhagen, and his impressions of war, rendered with immediacy and vigor in these pages.
