    Vladimir Mayakovsky – This short play is the most interesting yet most baffling work in this set Mayakovsky creates evocative lines Bridges wringing their iron hands Because the nooses of noon were too tight Dark caverns of eyesAnd some uite memorable linesAll you people hereare mere bells in the duncecap of God p 26If you have loved as I have lovedYou would murder love p 29What this all means I don’t know The Bedbug – This is also a strange play It’s about a dystopian future but it takes a long time to get there And as a 21st century American I can’t get my head around Prysipkin Is he a hero or a fool? He isn’t really developed enough for me to make much of him Overall I think this is a very good translation by Guy Daniels The rhymes are handled deftly in the English Many – if not most – translators warp the language with too many and too forced rhymes

    Interesting work and I can see how he influenced a number of other playwrights But a lot of this stuff feels overwritten Would love to see analysis of how this work shaped Soviet culture and society
