I’d like to tell you some words about Ekaterina’s father, Robert Rozhdestvensky (20 June 1932 – 19 August 1994). Robert was a Soviet poet who broke with socialist realism in the 1950s–1960s and pioneered a newer, fresher, and freer style of poetry in the Soviet Union.
Rozhdestvensky tried not to criticize the government, and thus remained in official favor through the 1960s and 1970s, even being awarded the Lenin Prize in 1979.
Last poems of Robert Rozhdestvensky were published after his death.
