“Most of the lyrics in this volume are true to themselves as English poems and a nearly astonishing percentage are absolutely faithful, as well, to the Russian originals. . . .The Berlin Wall is as nothing compared to the linguistic boundaries separating East and West. The translations in this volume testify to a long-lasting love affair with these boundaries which has borne rich fruit.” –Joseph Brodsky
