Interests

I welcome all corrections and discussions aimed at improving my translations and/or language skills.
I believe that the only proper way to translate poetry is through preserving the original meter and rhyme pattern.

My main contributions to LT are English translations of two great Soviet bards Vladimir Vysotsky  and Yuri Vizbor.

Recently, I've ventured into translating poetry by Bella Akhmadulina

When I'm getting tired of this 50 years vintage poetry, I take refuge in Russian Rock bands of the '90s: 

  • Akvarium
  • Chaif
  • Chizh & Co
  • Kino
  • Krematoriy 
  • Nautilus Pompilius
  • Mumiy Troll
  • Yanka Dyagileva
  • Zoopark
  • Plus, I did a small number of translations into Russian.

    About me
