Ol'ga Sedakova

Olga Sedakova is an internationally recognized poet and thinker. Emerging out of the late Soviet Underground, she has gone on to become a voice of conscience in the post-Soviet era. Sedakova is the recipient of many awards, including Russia's Andrei Bely Prize. Her poems engage diverse modes, from the folkloric to the metaphysical, and reflect an ethic and aesthetic grounded in Russian cultural tradition and informed by a "longing for world culture" (Osip Mandelstam).
