When the Universe tries to know itself, it sends round a billion and a dozen of life-hungry couriers with just three things to do: to taste, to touch and to experience. Sensorizm and ever-lasting thirst for everything new and unknown are two perfect guides in this short trip, the purpose of which is to enjoy life in its very bloom.

Observation: a very good poet can be a very poor reciter of his own poetry...

Posted 04-26-2010 at 08:38 AM by Helen Agaf
Prince Sergey Volkonski about his home and well-known poets of his youth:

"Very often poets came to our place to recite their poetry. Alexey K. Tolstoy recited his best verses, as well as Yakov P. Polonski* – both were worst possible reciters. Apollon N. Maykov recited his “Three deaths”, “The two worlds” and many other poems. He was a quite brilliant reciter, with clear logical and strikingly artistic declamation."

*Yakov P. Polonski - Russian poet and prosaist. Many of his poems were set to music.
