UA Poetry Center
In this bilingual reading, Alex Dunkel reads English translations of Aleksandr Yudakhin alongside the author. Yudakhin was flown from the Soviet Union to read in Tucson with the help of Soviet and Russian Studies, UA Poetry Center, UA Office of International Programs, the Soros Foundation, and Tucson Pima Arts Council. The English translations read were created by Alison Hawthorne Deming and Alex Dunkel. They were created ad hoc to provide context for those who were not familiar with the Russian language and are not considered to be definitive.
