“Pick a piece of wood floating in the river and follow it down the current with your glance, keeping the eyes constantly on it, without getting ahead of the current. This is the way poetry should be read: at the pace of a line."
Vera Pavlova was born in Moscow. She is the author of seventeen collections of poetry and five opera librettos. Her first collection in English is If There Is Something to Desire (Alfred A. Knopf, 2010).
