Khodasevich at the Poetry Cafe 29 September

Poetry Cafe

We have received a notification from Peter Daniels as follows:

I’ll be presenting my translations of Vladislav Khodasevich (1886-1939) at the Poetry Café, 22 Betterton St, London WC2H 9BX, on Wednesday 29 September 7.30 (£5 / £3 conc). This is part of the series organised by Sebastian Hayes, who will be presenting his translations of Catherine Pozzi.


Khodasevich left Russia in 1922 at the time when he was developing his mature style, and died in Paris just before the start of World War II. In his later years he wrote less poetry and had a dwindling audience of émigré Russian-speakers, but Nabokov considered him the finest Russian poet of the 20th century, and he now has a considerable following in Russia.

Sounds interesting to me!
