F LETTER assembles the feminist poets who have palpably changed the Russian language over the last decade. Against the backdrop of state violence and oppression, this is electric dissent in pursuit of a democratic, egalitarian future. A lexicon for revolution worldwide. But this anthology's brilliance lies in its rhythm, energy, and depth of emotion - in its universal relevance rather than applied politics. As Eileen Myles writes of its verse in a foreword to the work, "there are lines like a curse that yodel radiantly out of the toothy mouth of the curser...lines that are just so fucking metonymic in their grace...I've been invited to witness. To smell the crowd and be charged by history."
