Literary project dedicated to Russian poets presented in Minsk

MINSK, 1 April (BelTA) –The book series Syabryna: Poetry of Russia’s Peoples was presented in the Druzhba bookstore of the Belkniga book retailer on 1 April, BelTA has learned.

Two books of the series have already been published and the third one will see the light of day soon. The first book Morning Wind in the Window was written by People’s Writer of Udmurtia Vyacheslav Ar-Sergi and translated into Belarusian by Viktor Gordei. The second one is a book of verses by People’s Poet of Tatarstan Robert Minnullin translated by Nikolai Metlitsky.

Chairman of the Minsk department of the Union of Writers of Belarus Mikhail Pozdnyakov noted that cultural relations between Belarus and Russia have been gaining steam, writers enjoy strong cooperation ties. “It is important that joint literary translation projects are launched thanks to our friendship. Russian translations of Belarusian authors let the world discover the works of our writers,”he said.

Syabryna: Poetry of Russia’s Peoples book series proves that the links of the two countries in literature grow stronger every year,”chief editor of the Mastatskaya Litaratura publishing house Viktor Shnip said. “The third book stands out because it includes works of almost twenty modern poets who are known in their republics but are yet to be discovered in Belarus. This step is important to continue the mutual cultural enrichment of Belarus and Russia,”he added.

The book series was initiated in 2016. Each book has a circulation of 300-500 copies which can be found in Belkniga shops.

All the three books of the book series Syabryna: Poetry of Russia’s Peoples will be presented at the Red Square book festival in Moscow on 1-6 June.
