Synopsis: Freedom to Believe is a powerful collection of philosophical and religious essays by a modern poet of distinction. It introduces a highly original and controversial thinker to the Western reader. Olga Sedakova's central philosophical thought lies in the notion of existential freedom in its association with the liberating power of the arts, especially poetry. These convictions place her firmly in the Russian and European classical cultural traditions, which, in turn, have deep roots in Christianity. Devoutly Orthodox yet fiercely independent in her thinking, Sedakova's ecumenical humanism places her in opposition to both the "new left" and modern fundamentalism. Indeed, Sedakova's "conservatism" is more genuinely new than the so-called radicalism of the postmodernists, as she castigates "old totalitarianism" and new commercialism alike, in the name of a new cultural poetics and politics.

About the Author: Olga A. Sedakova is a world renowned poet and essayist, an author of twenty-nine books of poetry, prose, translations, and criticism.

Slava I. Yastremski is associate professor of Russian at Bucknell University.

Michael M. Naydan is Woksob Family Professor of Ukrainian Studies at the Pennsylvania State University and a prolific translator from Ukrainian and Russian.
