Poetry Prize Goes to Gandelsman


13.06.2011

A Moscow jury has named the Soviet-era dissident Vladimir Gandelsman the winner of this year’s Moscow Count poetry prize, Voice of Russia reports. He gets 50 thousand roubles for a 2010 book titled An Ode to the Dandelion.

Gandelsman is 63. In the period since 1989, he has been living in the United States.

The Moscow Count is an allusion to ‘the Hamburg Count’, a proverbial measure of a person’s true worth in competitive fields.
