Neputns izdevis krievu konceptuālās dzejas klasiķi Dmitriju A. Prigovu

A selection of Dmitry Prigov's poems has been published in the black series

The artist and sculptor Dmitry Prigov (1940-2007) is one of the most prominent Russian poets – a representative of the Moscow school of conceptualism, a dissident who was published only in foreign publications during the Soviet period. He was repressed for his openly ironic and scathing political poetry, forcibly committed to a psychiatric clinic after a public appearance in 1986, and released only after the intervention of influential Soviet and foreign writers.

Prigov's poetry is characterised by ironic conceptualism, stylisation and the use of naive elements; his texts caricature the rigidity and flatness as well as the emphasised moralisation of Soviet official language. One of Prigov's poetic tasks was to deconstruct rigid structures of thought, choosing not only the collective prejudices of Soviet society, but also philosophical, religious and aesthetic motifs, giving the reader the opportunity to "continue" the work begun and to invest a certain intellectual effort in the reading process."

Klajā nāk Edvarda Kuka pirmais dzejoļu krājums

Neputns publishes Edvards Kuks’ debut collection of poems

Vadi (Wires) is Edvards Kuks’ first collection of poems.

Editor of the collection Arvis Viguls: "I have been following the creation of Edvards Kuks’ debut collection since the first versions of the manuscript. In this process, Kuks as a poet has continued to seek and grow, and in the collection Vadi he debuts as a slightly different, certainly more mature poet and man than in his first publications. However, his youthful love for language, which has created vivid means of expression and peculiar solutions of form that seem to come to the mind of no one but Edvards, has not disappeared."

Edvards Kuks (1997) is a poet, translator, author of children's lyrics (Tutas lietas (Tuta’s Things), Emī un Rū, UkuLele) as well as a reviewer of poetry and hip-hop. Since 2015, he has published in "Satori", "Punctum", "Domuzīme", etc. Kuks’ poetry is included in the young poets’ anthology Kā pārvarēt niezi galvaskausā (How to Overcome Itchy Skull?; Valters Dakša, 2018) and in the selection of experimental poetry Ja aizmirsti savu vārdu (If you Forget your Name; Paladium Kirjaat, 2020). He is currently studying for a Master's degree in Science and Technology at Maastricht University.
