I have tried to collect some of the poems I like the most on these pages.
You will find here pieces of English poetry, some of the most breathtaking
sonnets I have ever come across, and also some translations of Russian poetry
into English. Unfortunately, one can never fully appreciate the poetic beauty
in a translation... And yet, I think it's worthwhile to read it.

Of course, this collection is far from being complete. Some of the Russian poems
I love are not available in English, and I have only a limited choice of
English poems. However, I hope you enjoy these pages. And I'll try to
update them as I find new material.
