The Poetry Society of America is thrilled to present one of Russia’s most celebrated poets. Vera Pavolova has published fourteen collections of poetry, and her work has been translated into nineteen languages. Her most recent collection, If There is Something to Desire: 100 Poems About Love (Knopf, 2010), is the poet’s first book in English, and occasions this distinguished reading. An award-winning poet, Pavolova’s fourth book, Chetvertyi Son (“The Fourth Dream,” Zakharov, 2000) was named the best book of the year by the Russian Academy of Letters and awarded the Apollon Grigoriev Prize, Russia’s most prestigious of its kind. Her work has been featured in The New Yorker, and as part of Poetry in Motion® in both New York and Los Angeles.
This event is co-sponsored by The Russian American Foundation.
