Anzhelina Polonskaya is an internationally renowned poet. Born in Malakhovka, a small town near Moscow, she published her first book of verse My Heavenly Torch in 1993; this was followed in 1998 by a second volume, entitled Verses, and in 1999 by The Sky in a Private’s Eye. In 2002, another book of poetry, A Voice, was published in Moscow, and in 2004. The English translation of this work was shortlisted for the 2005 Corneliu Popescu Prize for European Poetry in Translation.
In 2011, the “Oratorio-Requiem” Kursk, whose libretto consists of ten of Polonskaya’s poems, was debuted at the Melbourne Arts Festival. In 2013, Paul Klee’s Boat, a bilingual edition of Polonskaya’s recent poems, was published and shortlisted for the 2014 Best Translated Book Award and the PEN Award for Poetry in Translation.
