Elaine Feinstein, the UK author who contributed to Issue 6 of Interlitq, has been cited in “For the great poet Marina Tsvetaeva, “every verse was a child of love” (Yolanda Delgado, Russia Beyond the Headlines, 26.09.13):

The following is an excerpt of Elaine Feinstein’s translation of “Poem of the End”: “Understand: we have grown into one as we slept and now I can’t jump because I can’t let go your hand/and I won’t be torn off as I press close to you: this bridge is no husband but a lover: a just slipping past/our support: for the river is fed with bodies! I bite in like a tick you must tear out my roots to be rid of me.” English-language readers owe Feinstein a debt of gratitude for introducing so many readers in English to Tsvetaeva’s lush, open voice.
