The publication of "Antiworlds" represents a remarkable achievement in the art of translation. Six American poets - W.H. Auden, Jean Garrigue, Stanley Kunitz, Stanley Moss, William Jay Smith, and Richard Wilbur - were given, by Max Hayward, literal translations and prosodic models of these Voznesensky poems. As the poets created English equivalents, Mr. Hayward continued to interpret for them the sense, the sound, and the associations of the originals. Faithful to Voznesensky's meaning and intent, the results are splendid English poems in their own right, worthy of joining the main body of American poetry. Indeed, the entire endeavor is a unique tribute by contemporaries and peers to a modern poet of another culture. Although he was a protégé of Boris Pasternak, Voznesensky's idiom is completely original and contemporary; indeed, he can be called Russia's first modern poet.
