In March of 1983, Irina Ratushinskaya, a Russian poet, was charged by Soviet authorities with “authorship of poetry” and “documents in defense of human rights.” Anyone who has read up on the Stalin years (and beyond), knows that the Russians take poetry and poets seriously. In Ratushinskaya’s case, she was a poet involved with the budding Polish labor movement, which I suppose made her a “criminal” in their eyes.

July was the cruelest month, at least regarding those writers who I think we ought to honor most--those who speak the truth regardless of cost.

I only read the Russian originals in this bilingual edition, and my review is based on that. I appreciate the labor of translation by Padorr Brent and J. Avins, but couldn't connect with the poems in English. They seem accurately translated, but at the expense of conveying Ratushinskaya' s form and feeling. I look forward to reading these poems in other translations.
