Dmitry Vodennikov

The Russian Word in Edinburgh: A Poetry Evening with Dmitry Vodennikov

Poetry will always be a unified field. Your poems are not drawn from thin air. They come from other people’s verses and other people’s voices. You are a kaleidoscope of someone else’s lyrics. This must always be remembered. And be thankful, for without another, there would be no you.
