First published by Ekstasis Editions in 2013, Canadian Randy Kohan’s collection of poetry, Hammers & Bells, drew deeply on the treasury that is Russian literature. Zaira Makhacheva initiated and directed the translation of a bilingual edition for presentation in locations across North America and Russia. It was translated into Russian by two award-winning Russian writers, Alisa Ganieva and Anastasia Strokina. Together, they present this bilingual edition as a lyric window on the expressive nature of two cultures’ languages.

published 2015 72 pages

The poet William Blake once wrote, “All that we saw was owing to your metaphysics.” Elusive, ingenuous, acerbic and sophisticated by turns, Bettina Klix, like Blake, cleanses our perception—her Rapture of the Depths shows us over and over again, in manifold ways, that we must always change our metaphysics.

published 2011 116 pages

Hammers and Bells is subjective biography, a lyric response to life drawing upon nature, human history and the poet-witnesses who found beauty in the depths of its apparent absence. There is also a cross-current at work, a blend of the carnal and the spiritual, something perhaps attributable to a uniquely Slavic perception of the world.
