Portrait Ilya Kaminsky
Ilya Kaminsky [© Cybele Knowles]

In his poetic texts, Ilya Kaminsky makes references to archetypes, myths, and Russian literature, bringing them to life with his keen sense of rhythm and melody of the English language. »Kaminsky’s verse spans continents and centuries, and feels like it belongs to Russian immigrant dreamers, American tourists and the millions who perished in the Holocaust and Stalin’s purges, all at once« [Jerusalem Post].
