Abstract:

"The death of Gennady Aygi on February 21, 2006 was a terrible loss to contemporary world poetry. Field-Russia is a book of poems Aygi arranged shortly before his death. It begins with an informal conversation about his thoughts on poetry, and opens out into a series of little lyric "books"--Field-Russia, Time of the Ravines, and Final Departure - that together form a part of what Aygi called his "life-book." The collection closes with a poetic tribute to Paul Celan, followed by a Afterword by Peter France. A vanguardist nature poet with roots in ancient shamanistic traditions, Aygi, like Akhmatova and Celan before him, has left us with those most necessary words to dwell in - a quiet, spiritual poetry in a time of uprootedness and despair."--Jacket.
