Where the Poplar Grows


A selection of Pavlo Tychyna's poems in Ukrainian and in Stephen Komarnyckyj's impressionistic English translations, which capture the power and beauty of the original. The book also includes a foreword and an interview with the translator. Sean Street, the renowned poet and broadcaster, described these poems as a "revelation" and, reviewing an edition of Modern Poetry in Translation in The Guardian, Charles Bembridge said, "What stands out are the extraordinarily delicate and hopeful lyrics written by Tychyna."
