Kirill Medvedev
Born in Moscow, in 1975, Kirill Medvedev has recently emerged as one of the most exciting, unpredictable voices on the Russian literary scene. Widely published and acclaimed as a poet, he is also is an activist for labour and a member of the Russian Socialist movement Vpered [Forward]. He contributes essays regularly to Chto Delat’, and other opposition magazines. His small press, The Free Marxist Publishing House [SMI], has recently released his translations of Pasolini, Eagleton, and Goddard, as well as numerous books at the intersection of literature, art and politics, including a collection of his own essays. It's No Good, a collection of his poems and essays, is published by Fitzcarraldo Editions in June 2015. As always, it is published without the author's permission. 'Europe' was composed in October 2002, on the road to and from a poetry festival in Rome. It would be Medvedev’s last published poem before he left the literary world.
