Russian Poetry and Revolution

College of Humanities
February 15, 2017

Feb. 17 at 5 p.m.

UA Poetry Center, Rubel Room

The revolutionary events of the year 1917 were a watershed moment in Russian history, causing profound and irreversible changes to the country's political, social and economic life, as well as taking an immeasurable human toll. Some of the best-known works of twentieth-century Russian literature, cinema and visual art were dedicated to representing and reflecting on the revolution and its accompanying upheavals in society. Yet the impact of 1917 reaches far beyond Russia's borders, as it set the stage for the unfolding of modern global history in the twentieth century.

In order to commemorate the hundred-year anniversary of the Russian Revolution, and to examine its legacy in the world today, the Department of Russian & Slavic Studies will be hosting a series of free, public events throughout 2017.

Join us on Feb. 17, for Russian Poetry and Revolution with poet, translator, critic, and editor of "1917: Stories and Poems from the Russian Revolution," Boris Dralyuk. This event is sponsored by the College of Humanities, Department of Russian & Slavic Studies, School of International Languages, Literatures, & Cultures, and the UA Poetry Center.
