Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Rubinstein succeeds in arranging his fragmented text in such a clever way that they invariably trigger off a series of associations, even in the reader who fails to catch all the allusions weaved in by the author. Thus his texts begin to speak to any reader anywhere and in any language, but they speak in a different way.

Synopsis:

He can be likened to some of the poets of the New York School, also Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein...

Synopsis:

Rubinstein's work is an ongoing interactive process in which this book - the first such collection in English translation - represents the next logical step.

About the Author

Born in 1947, Rubinstein studied language and literature at Moscow University. He first made a name for himself in the '70s as a central figure in the Moscow conceptualist movement. Needless to say, his unorthodox poems were not printed in the official literary journals of the time, but circulated instead in samizdat, in boxes or ring-bound. At the same time, Rubinstein began performing his poetry in private settings for audiences of one to a dozen people. Not until the early '90s did his poems begin appearing in Russia's "thick journals". The acclaim was instant. But the standardized format meant sacrificing Rubinstein's preferred form of presentation: text fragments — a line of verse, a theoretical remark, a bit of descriptive prose, snippets of phone conversation, a stage direction, an expletive — on separate index cards.
