“Pussy insurrection are Vvedensky's disciples and his heirs. Katya, Masha, and that i are in detention center yet I don’t contemplate that we’ve been defeated.... based on the authentic record, Alexander Vvedensky died on December 20, 1941. We don’t recognize the reason, no matter if it used to be dysentery within the teach after his arrest or a bullet from a shield. It used to be someplace at the railway line among Voronezh and Kazan. His precept of ‘bad rhythm’ is our personal. He wrote: ‘It occurs that rhythms will come into your head, a very good one and a foul one and that i pick out the undesirable one. it is going to be the correct one.’ ... it really is believed that the OBERIU dissidents are useless, yet they survive. they're persecuted yet they don't die.” — Pussy insurrection [Nadezhda Tolokonnikova’s remaining assertion at their
trial in August 2012]

“I raise[d] my hand opposed to concepts,” wrote Alexander Vvedensky, “I enacted a poetic critique of reason.” This weirdly and fantastically philosophical poet used to be born in 1904, grew up in the middle of conflict and revolution, and reached his creative adulthood as Stalin was once twisting the that means of phrases in gruesome and deadly methods. Vvedensky—with Daniil Kharms the most important determine within the short–lived underground avant-garde staff OBERIU (a neologism for “the union for genuine art”)—responded with a poetry that explodes solid that means into shimmering streams of provocation and invention. A Vvedensky poem is sort of a loopy get together filled with theater, movie, magic methods, jugglery, and feasting. Curious characters look and disappear, euphoria retains corporation with depression, outrageous assertions bring about epic shouting suits, and maybe all of it breaks off with one lonely individual making a song a song.

A Vvedensky poem doesn’t make an announcement. it truly is an occasion. Vvedensky’s poetry was  unpublishable in the course of his lifetime—he made a residing as a author for kids ahead of demise below arrest in 1942—and he is still the least recognized of the nice twentieth-century Russian poets. this is often his first publication to seem in English. The translations by way of Eugene Ostashevsky and Matvei Yankelevich, amazing poets of their personal correct, are as astonishingly alert and alive because the originals.

Thucydides, however, claims that Stagira was founded by colonists from Andros, as we have seen, and not by Chalcidians.
