Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. WHAT DO YOU WANT? is Marina Temkina's first book in English. It consists of several texts made for installations, or as part of hand-made artist's books. In addition to these, two poems translated from Russian (by Vladislav Davidzon and Alexander Stessin) are also included, along with installation images and original drawings by the author.

About the Author

Marina Temkina was born in Leningrad in 1948 and emigrated to New York City in 1978. She has published four books of poetry in Russian: Chasti chast' (A Part of A Part), V obratnom napravlenii (In Reverse), Kalancha (Watchtower), and Canto Immigranto. In collaboration with Michel Gerard, she has published two artist's books in France: Observatoire Geomnesique and MoMA Duomo: Twelve Objects from Melencholia and the Broken Obelisk. Marina is also the artist/author behind several multimedia poetry installations. She is the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts grant and a Charles H. Revson Fellowship on the Future of New York at Columbia University. Her work has been included in several international anthologies and poetry magazines. She writes on gender, Russian-Jewish identity and immigration with a sense of history lived through and expressed as an intimate experience.
