Annotation: The painful nerve running through Lida Yusupova's new book of poetry is the everyday violence that permeates contemporary Russian reality. Based on fragmentary citation of official court archives, Yusupova's documentary poetry follows the logic of “liberation montage,” by means of which the invisible victim of a crime takes on visible features. The author's ethical task is to return the voice to the victim, to make it audible in the space of individual and collective memory. According to the poet Galina Rymbu, “Lida Yusupova turns the dead into the living, the sentence into mourning. Yusupova’s others are now inside us—and so they remain alive.”
