The author of several volumes of poetry in Russian and English, Ilya Kutik is also a consummate essayist in the Russian tradition: aphoristic, allusive, deploying unlikely juxtapositions and poetic measures to arrive at surprising and gratifying insights. In this first English-language collection of Kutik's essays, readers encounter one of the best and most original contemporary Russian stylists.
ILYA KUTIK is an associate professor in the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures at Northwestern University and a poet, critic, and translator of Swedish literature into Russian.

ANDREW WACHTEL is a professor of Slavic languages and literatures at Northwestern University. He is the author of Making a Nation, Breaking a Nation: Literature and Cultural Politics in Yugoslavia.
