Blurbs A new book of searingly intelligent poems from a uniquely eloquent poet. Larissa Shmailo draws on the experience of her immense challenges-prostitution, alcoholism, drugs and insanity-and her immense advantages-a gift for poetic form, a razor-sharp mind, the spirit of a mystic, and a deep intimacy with world literature and culture-to share with us precious and hard-learned lessons. Medusa's Country is a book to savor, and Larissa Shmailo, novelist, translator, and poet of urgent maturity and resonant depth, is a writer to watch. - Jacket Copy Related Posts Dean Kostos Medusa's Country by Larissa Shmailo Medusa's Country by Larissa Shmailo Shmailo adds, "Larissa's rose is sick and is consuming me." This alludes to William Blake's poem "The Sick Rose," pertaining to self-destructive sexuality. Shmailo avers, "His eyes transfixed by my serpents / that hardened, froze, and pleased. Indeed, misogyny has-from antiquity to Ibsen's era to the present-castigated women who dared to exhibit intelligence and power.

Festival, a spokesperson for NEA funding, and a member of the advisory Board of the NYC Poetry Calendar. Critical Commentary Larissa is constitutionally predetermined to sing out in her lines. The notes stick in your head. She hails from all over the place and brings a unique poetic worldview, her eyes filled with life and love, pain and death, freedom and coercion, the real of the mind and the imagined of the heart. . .When it comes to capturing the intimacy of pain, Larissa Shmailo is among the most daring poets of her generation. When speaking of human rights, she is a human flame. She is subtle and provocative, fresh and out of bounds. You will fall in love her, and you will be loved right back. I see [Shmailo's] work as a continuum in a long tradition of radical writing practices from Futurism, to Dada, to Oulipo, to Pussy Riot. Shmailo has managed to split language into its common & least common denominators/principles: sound, meaning, symbol, feeling (text/ure) as well as providing us with a range of voices from child to adult & male to female within a range of styles & mannerisms from the ultra-experimental to quirky ? innocent rhymes like her sexy riff on the 12 days of Christmas in her classic The Other Woman's Cunt. Her knowledge of the WORD & how to use it extends from darkly humorous to warm, lyrical, tender & painful . . .
