  • It's No Good


In the years since, he has protested the Putin regime on the streets of Moscow, written long essays about the post-Soviet intelligentsia, and taken his poetry in new directions. ''I am interested,'' Medvedev has written, ''exclusively in the artist undertaking a 'battle for his art' which in our own time will mean a battle for his position. The meaning of this is contained not in one or another social function, but, to the contrary, in the ability to see, without distortion by one's social standing, without limitations by one's artistic milieu.''

This book, co-published with Ugly Duckling Presse, collects Medvedev's poetry, essays, and manifestos from the past decade.
