Grigorij Starodubcev: The Proto-earth

The poems transcend privacy and the public images are many a time accompanied by a Kafkaesque motif of an unidentifiable pressure. Seeing other aspects of reality takes on a psychedelic dimension where a mistake or a small deviation from the normal is fair enough for the collapse of the world and this moment is topped up by a period context of suspicion. The works of this author brim with a cultivated expression and sense of abbreviation, which forces us to re-evaluatethe substitution of sudden interconnections for the internal ones with hindsight.
