  Russian Poetry Reading  
(Academic)

Sergey Gandlevsky is widely recognized as a leading Russian poet. An integral member of the '70s generation, Gandlevsky was one of the underground Russian poets who began by writing only for themselves and their circles of friends during the Brezhnev era. This generation forged new directions in Russian poetry, unfettered by the pressures that burdened Russian writers during the Soviet period. He has published more than a dozen books of poetry, memoirs, and fiction. He has won both the Little Booker Prize and the Anti-Booker Prize in 1996 for his poetry and prose, an irony he relishes. Serge has been called both formal and populist, connecting contemporary subjects matter Russia's deep poetical traditions. Acknowledging the influences of Russian literary greats such as Nabokov, Pushkin, and Lermontov, Gandlevski is able to integrate Soviet-era slang and pop-cultural references, creating verse that is uniquely his.
