Buy in
This is a first book of «Ars poetica» series, established by Astrolabe Publishing House, and a fi rst retrospective edition of a famous Ukrainian poet Igor Kaczurowsky, a leading representative of Ukrainian Neo-Classicism and a heir to poetic traditions of Mykola Zerov and his school. Th e poems in the book are selected and ordered by the author himself: these are parts of poetic collections published in Saltzburg, Buenos Aires, Munich, and Kyiv that have already become bibliographic rarities and previously unpublished ones. Th ese verses refl ect a career of the poet during more than seven decades — since 1936 till 2013. Some separate chapters contain his poems written in Russian and Spanish and a number of Kaczurowsky’s new translations and translations of his verses into foreign languages. «Lyrics» by Igor Kaczurowsky accompanied with a foreword by Volo dymyr Bazylevsky and the poet’s own aft erword will bring a reader to the world of true poetry which makes us forget all space and temporal limits of our life.
