Boris Slutsky

Boris Slutsky (1919-1986) was a Ukrainian born poet who wrote in Russian. His experiences in World War II had a great impact on his coarse and conversational poetry, and he was one of the most important representatives of the “war generation” of Russian poets. Soon after Stalin’s death, verses that some attributed to Slutsky, and that were highly critical of Stalinism, circulated in samizdat. Slutsky never confirmed or denied his authorship.
