Фронтовая лира

A collection of poems by Russian poets who served in the Second World War (Great Patriotic War).

This picture shows the crossing of the River Don by Soviet soldiers in 1942, described by Nikolay Gribachev in one of the poems in the collection.

There are 13 of us translators working on this anthology under the leadership of Katherine E Young. I am translating poems by Nikolay Gribachyov, Dmitriy Kedrin, Sergey Markov, Sergey Narovchatov, and Nikolay Starshinov. The anthology will be out in hardback in late 2021.
