The facsimile reproduction of Victory Over the Sun, the Russian text faced with a parallel English translation. This new translation is by an erudite master of the word, Evgeny Steiner. Even the innovative language and humour of Victor Khlebnikov’s Prologue, written largely in neologisms, are captured in Dr Steiner’s English rendition, as are alliteration and sound patterns.
