B O D Y’s Pavel Srut week

It’s all Czech poet Pavel Šrut all week in B O D Y, beginning with Monday’s essay by translator Deborah Garfinkle “Remembering Pavel Šrut’s Worm-Eaten Light” and continuing with her translations of his poetry and a review of his work.

Worm-Eaten Light is the work Šrut published in 1969 following the Soviet-led invasion of Czechoslovakia and, as she notes, the book was almost immediately pulled from the shelves and banned. It would be another 10 years before Šrut wrote poetry again.

On Tuesday, there are a pair of poems, with more to come.
