Abstract

How can photography inform poetic language? Molly Thomasy Blasing, an associate professor of Russian studies at the University of Kentucky (USA) who specialises in modern and contemporary Russian poetry as well as encounters between literature and the visual arts, tries to answer this question in her book Snapshots of the Soul: Photo-Poetic Encounters in Modern Russian Culture.
