      Arkadii Trofimovich Dragomoshchenko was a Russian poet, writer, translator, and lecturer He is considered the foremost representative of language poetry in contemporary Russian literature.Dragomoshchenko fused elements of poetry, essay, philosophy, journalism and fictional prose He explores the way our perceived and conceptual worlds are constructed through language Self consciousness, mannerism and a degree of abstraction are inevitable hazards in this territory, they are also concomitants of an individual voice obstinately pursuing its own themes The fundamental characteristics of his work remain constant and may be summarized in the title of his first American translations Description.

    1. Arkadii Dragomoshchenko was a "language poet" and translator of (primarily) American poetry (John Ashbery etc.) into Russian. It should consequently come as little surprise that DUST collects an assortment of essays that are essentially doing poetry by other means. These are essays that couldn't be further away from Montaigne; indeed they are often as not closer to Mallarmé. Mallarmé probably isn't right at all. There is more to DUST than language languaging. An intransigent materialist, I hav [...]


    2. This book was shelved in my library as new release: fiction, but it is not fiction. Instead, it's a series of eliptical but probably not technically lyric essays. Reflections, pensees, whatever, that's what these are.A lot of the individual essays seem concerned with questions of presence and absence: what are we seeing in front of us, and what are we missing; when we write, what disappears and what is made visible. Kinds of things like that, and the writing itself, while difficult in places, is [...]


    3. This is a beautiful little book I happened upon by chance. I don't know that much about "Language poetry" or Dragomoshchenko as an author but I really enjoyed the work here. This book occupies a space outside or in between genres, each piece having elements of the prose poem, essay, short story, and memoir which blend together fantastically, and elude you just when a concrete definition seems close. I particularly enjoyed the skillful way the author veered between high academic language and subj [...]


    4. 1.This guy's name is really fucking awesome. 2. I'm only an essay (and I use the word 'essay' very, very loosely) and a half in, but this seems to be played from the same ballpark as Seabald or Markson, or even Ishiguro, kinda. Not quite as circular or recursive, but there's a similar slow, heavy-liddedness in the prose.


    5. Beautiful, thoughtful, wandering essays that explore the fleeting thoughts of the mind. A wonderful experiment in prose containing really poignant moments alongside funny and nostalgic. The way the essays are structured (or maybe not structured) reminded me of the awesome, infuriating structure of mind and memory.




    6. I thought I'd write a review that mirrored Drago's style, but I don't think i have the guts. I liked this, but it is CERTAINLY not for everyone. Holy lord, what a difficult book.
