Product Description

Music for the Dead and Resurrected is the first collection to be published on Bloomsbury's poetry list, curated by the prize-winning poet Kayo ChingonyiThis is Valzhyna Mort's third poetry collection, and the first to be published in the UK. Music for the Dead and Resurrected was named winner of the International Griffin Prize and a New York Times Best Poetry Book of 2020The collection interacts with the political unrest in Belarus, and several of these poems have musical form as their conceitValzhyna Mort is a poet and translator born in Minsk, Belarus, and she writes in English and Belarusian. She is the author of three poetry collections, Factory of Tears, Collected Body and Music for the Dead and Resurrected.WINNER OF THE INTERNATIONAL GRIFFIN PRIZE A NEW YORK TIMES BEST POETRY BOOK OF 2020 Music for the Dead and Resurrected captures the complexity of living in the shadows of imperial force, of the vulnerability of bodies, of seeing with more than the eyes. Valzhyna Mort's work is characterised by a memorial sensibility that honours those lost to the violences of nation states. In Music for the Dead and Resurrected the poet offers us a body of work which balances political import with serious play. There are few poets writing with such an intuitive sense of the balance between arcane and contemporary currents in poetry. Mort's lines are timeless, finely honed to last beyond a single lifetime.In her book of letters to the dead, the prize-winning poet Valzhyna Mort relearns how to mourn those erased by violent history[A] striking study of what Belarus can teach the world about state violence, collective memory, and the role of poetry in fighting tyranny . . . [Mort] captures, through language, the contours of dissent. Soviet monuments remain upright in Minsk, like concrete odes to terror, repression, and silence. And yet Music for the Dead and the Resurrected feels like its own monument, not only to Belarusians but also to victims of state violence around the world
