Anna Glazova has a similar life trajectory to Barskova’s. She received her earliest education in the Soviet system, moved to Frankfurt, Germany to study comparative literature at the Goethe-Universität, then received a PhD from Northwestern University. Her first book of poetry, Let Water (Pust’ I voda) appeared in 2003, followed by Loop. Unhalved (Petlia. Nevpolovinu) in 2008. If Barskova is interested in moving the past into the present, Glazova pushes Russian poetry along another axis, toward another cultural tradition. A specialist in modern German literature, she has done major translations of German authors into Russian, including Robert Walser, Unica Zürn and, most importantly, Paul Celan. Event takes place as part of Russian Voices Symposium and Philosophical Cabaret - a day long celebration of Russian poetry, music, and culture.
