National Poetry Month 2019: A Reading List

April is National Poetry Month! This past year, we’re pleased to have added collections of translated poetry to our catalog, along with scholarly studies of poetry. Most recently, we released Ostap Kin’s New York Elegies: Ukrainian Poems on the City, an edited bilingual collection of Ukrainian poems exploring the relationship between Ukrainian poets and New York City; Maxim Shrayer’s Voices of Jewish-Russian Literature: An Anthology, a comprehensive selection of Jewish-Russian poetry and prose from the nineteenth century to the present; and the paperback editions of Mark Andryczyk’s The White Chalk of Days: The Contemporary Ukrainian Literature Series Anthology and Oksana Maksymchuk and Max Rosochinsky’s Words for War: New Poems from Ukraine.

Check out our picks for Poetry Month below and follow us on Twitter and Facebook for poem excerpts this month.
