Russian poets at Dickinson

This week, Russian poets and performers Tatiana Shcherbina and Pavel Lion (a.k.a Psoy Korolenko) traveled from Moscow to Carlisle to perform their works as part of the IX annual Semana Poetica. They also met individually with Dickinsonians, reading poetry with Russian students in class and explaining the cultural and philological contexts behind their work. Psoy Korolenko brought along not only his poetry, but his keyboard, and on Monday night he performed ten or so songs as part of a free, open concert in the The Quarry, after which he fielded questions from students and faculty.
