Maxim Amelin in Atlanta Review’s Russia Issue (spring/summer 2015)
Alex Cigale, one of America’s leading editors of Russian poetry, has included a new Amelin poem in his special “Russia” issue of the Atlanta Review (22.2). Alex guest-edited the issue, and Annie and I are thankful to him and Daniel Veach, the editor and publisher of Atlanta Review.
Also included are two reprints of earlier translations. “In a Temple with an Arcade” first appeared at Jacket2 alongside our interview with Amelin. “In August the Stars Shoot through the Night Air” first appeared in Reunion: The Dallas Review 4 (2014). Due to an editing error, the final four stanzas were left off the reprint of “In August.” Below you’ll find the poem in full.
