Catalogue of comedic novelties: selected poems
Poetry. Translated from the Russian by Philip Meteres and Tatiana Tulchinsky. A founding proponent of Moscow Conceptualism, Lev Rubinstein, born in 1941, is one of Russia's most well-known contemporary poets. His work, mostly conceived as a series of index cards, was circulated through samizdat and underground readings until the late 1980's, when, along with Dmitri Prigov, he was a contributor to Delo, the first aboveground collection of this group's poetic output. Several of his poems have appeared in American literary magazines, and he currently writes a regular column on cultural affairs in a prominent Russian weekly. This collection represents the wide range of his index-card poetry and hopes to reach the contemporary audience that Mr. Rubinstein doubtlessly deserves.
