The wild intoxication of a gipsy woman's love, the spiritual destiny of his native land, and the agonizing limitations of the poet's art, are some of the main themes of Blok's poetry. Blok's early verse is musical, but he later sought to introduce daring rhythmic patterns and uneven beats into his poetry. Poetical inspiration was natural for him, often producing unforgettable, otherworldly images out of the most banal surroundings and trivial events. This audio production features Blok's poetry readings by Vera Pavlova, one of the prominent contemporary poets and experienced performers. The audio track is accompanied by carefully rendered music creating abstract ambient sensations flowing naturally with these readings. Read in Russian.
