My favourite Russian poet Vladimir Mayakovsky

주간 토픽: My Favorite Poet

2020년 7월 29일

He was a famous Soviet Union poet and actor. Mayakovsky was often criticized because of his rebel spirit. And his poems aimed to challenge the rules of society of that time. He often used slang and  words created by himself in his poems. Despite this I think that he is the greatest Russian poet. 
 

Владимир Маяковский
А вы могли бы?

Я сразу смазал карту будня,
плеснувши краску из стакана;
я показал на блюде студня
косые скулы океана.
На чешуе жестяной рыбы
прочёл я зовы новых губ.
А вы
         ноктюрн сыграть
                         могли бы
на флейте водосточных труб?

1913

Vladimir Mayakovsky
And could you?

Just now I smeared the map of the daily grind,
splashing paint out of a glass;
I revealed the sharp cheek-bones of the ocean
on a platter of jellied meat.
I read the summons of new lips
on the scales of a tin fish.
And you
could you
play a nocturne

on a drain-pipe flute?
