Shvarts is one of Russia's greatest living poets, a writer who stands outside all schools and movements in contemporary Russian poetry. Birdsong on the Seabed presents a selection of her most recent poetry. Shvarts has brought out four new collections in Russian since the publication by Bloodaxe in 1993 of Paradise: Selected Poems, the first English edition of her poetry and a Poetry Book Society Recommended Translation. This new bilingual Russian-English selection also includes some poems not yet published in Russia.
