As a follow-up to my recent posts on Khlebnikov (it should have been a prequel), I’m linking to three short audio clips. This is Roman Jakobson reading poetry by Khlebnikov in 1954, more than 40 years after first meeting the poet.
- Incantation by Laughter (1908-9): audio, text.
- Grasshopper (1908-9): audio, text.
- He Said: audio. It’s is an extract from this poem (1912).
These are relatively early works. On the other hand, almost all of the poems in Khlebnikov’s Creations were composed within a span of less than 15 years (1908-22).
