Mountain and Flower

The Selected Poems of Mykola Vorobiov

Mountain and Flower is Mykola Vorobiov's second book in English translation. Translator Maria Rewakowicz presents a selection of poems spanning more than fifty years of Vorobiov's poetic craft, beginning with poems from his first collection Remind Me for the Road up to his most recent works. A founding member of the nonconformist literary group known as the Kyiv School of Poetry, Vorobiov is known in his early poems for a preoccupation with metaphor and surreal imagery. In his more mature poetry he reveals himself as a master of miniature, with considerable affinity to Japanese haiku. Nature reigns supreme, providing him with an endless opportunity for creating startling images. Vorobiov's concerns hover around issues of existence on all possible levels—plants, animals, humans, objects, and the universe.
