Dancing in Odessa (04 Edition)by Ilya Kaminsky
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Winner of the 2002 Tupelo Press Dorset Prize, this magical book of poems written by a Russian immigrant who came to America only a few years ago without knowing a single word of English, draws readers in ineluctably. Although a recent arrival, Kaminsky's ear for the music in English is better than most poets born here. As readers quickly realize upon opening the book, Kaminsky's poetry isn't just beautiful-it is unforgettable.
An undisputed rising poetic star, Ilya Kaminsky was born in Odessa, former Soviet Union. He has already received the Ruth Lilly fellowship from Poetry magazine and was the youngest person appointed Writer in Residence at Phillips Exeter Academy. Kaminsky, who is also almost totally deaf, will finish his law degree at the University of California in 2004.
Poetry. Winner of the 2002 Dorset Prize, and recipient of the Ruth Lilly Fellowship, Ilya Kaminsky is a recent Russian immigrant and rising poetic star. Despite the fact that he is a non-native speaker, Kaminksy's sense of rhythm and lyic surpasses that of most contemporary poets in the English language. This magical, musical book of poems draws readers into its unforgettable heart, and Carolyn Forché wrties simply "I'm in awe of his gifts."
