About Lev Rubinshtein

Born in 1947, Lev Rubinshtein studied philology at Moscow State University and worked as a librarian while he took part in the literary underground. Rubinshtein's central importance to the Russian avant-garde and his artistic links to the American Language School poetics, make him an essential figure both in Russian and international poetry. He has been widely published and anthologized in The Third Wave (1992), New Russian Writing (1995) and Crossing Centuries: The New Russian Poetry (2000). This translation project is supported by the National Endowment of the Arts (2001).
